Journal of The Historical Society, the official publication of The
Historical Society, is dedicated to the development of congenial discussions
and debates that illuminate rather than polarize the study of history.
The Journal will focus its attention, not on documenting the minutiae
of history, but on identifying the questions and problems historians face
in their pursuit of the past. To that end, The Journal welcomes
submissions of scholarly articles intended to engage a wide audience or
to assess the current state and future possibilities within specific historical
areas. The editors of The Journal will also invite responses to
specific articles to launch collegial debates among its readers, and letters
to the editor are always welcome.
Journal will accept manuscripts written in English, submitted in triplicate,
accompanied by a computer disk formatted in Microsoft Word. The author's
name and contact information (including a phone number and email address)
should appear on the first page of the article. Please number the pages
and double-space the text. Authors are encouraged to join The Historical
Society, but submissions will be accepted from members and non-members
alike. No simultaneous submissions will be accepted. Submissions and all
correspondence should be addressed to the editor,
Journal's editorial policies are designed to promote a spirit of open
dialogue within the demands of rigorous scholarship. Members of The
Journal's Editorial Board will read and evaluate each submission, and
their comments will be taken into consideration when the editor makes final
decisions on publication. The editor, the managing editor, and the publisher
will edit manuscripts for grammar, clarity, and consistency. Authors reserve
the right to view all editorial changes before The Journal goes to press,
and responsibility for the ideas and opinions expressed in their articles
rests solely with them. An editorial style guide is available at this website.
We encourage authors to consult the style guide before they submit articles
to the editors.
