Ohio History, the scholarly journal of the Ohio Historical Society, will become an online journal starting this fall. The Winter-Spring 2002 issue, scheduled for release this April, will be the last issue of the journal in print. Because the online version will be available to all Internet users free of charge, subscriptions will be discontinued.
The decision to place the journal online was prompted by cuts in project funding. Online publishing eliminates print production costs as well as postageóexpenses which cannot be covered by Ohio History subscription income alone.
Ohio History online will continue to publish the scholarly works enjoyed by readers of the print journal, including peer-reviewed articles, book reviews, and notices of events for history professionals of Ohio and the Midwest. Online users will also have the option to download and print articles in Adobe PDF format. The benefits of a free, online version of Ohio History include a wider audience for the journal and the capability to increase published material without an increase in cost.
Updates regarding Ohio History online will be posted at www.ohiohistory.org/publications/ohiohistory. We look forward to this new phase in the journalís evolution and invite your comments. You may contact the editorial office at firstname.lastname@example.org, or write to Ohio History at the Ohio Historical Center.
