The History Journals Guide, listed below, is an international directory for journals and discussion lists in the fields of history and archaeology. History is understood in a broad sense as the study of the past including all periods, all regions and all fields. The HJG covers scientific and popular-scientific, current and ceased, frequently or irregularly appearing, and interdisciplinary periodicals and lists.
The HJG aims to be a starting point for researchers, graduates, students, librarians and other interested persons and intends to provide an easy access to up-to-date information. It is updated regularly. The HJG is free accessible for all users worldwide. You do not have to register to use this directory. It is maintained by Stefan Blaschke.
The HJG is based on four pillars: Periodicals Directory, Discussion Lists Directory, Online Articles Index, Online Reviews Index.
The Periodicals Directory provides information about abbreviations, short description, editors, publishers, publication dates, frequency of publication, languages of articles, ISSN and websites. The directory can be browsed by title, period, region and subject, but also by language of articles and institutions. There is a subdivision for electronic journals and newsletter. All entries are ordered alphabetically. The directory is also searchable. At the moment, about 4,000 serials are listed.
There is also a subdivision with current announcements: awards, calls for papers, conferences (dealing, for example, with journal publishing, electronic publishing) editors wanted, new journals.
The HJG is still a one-man project without financial or institutional support. If there is a journal, not listed right now, but you think that it should be, then you can write an e-mail to the editor, firstname.lastname@example.org. Give as much information about the suggested journal (title, abbreviation, short description, editor, publisher, start of publication, frequency of publication, languages of articles, ISSN, URL of the website) as possible. Send an e-mail, if you want to update an information in the periodicals directory or if you want to comment on the periodicals directory or the complete guide.
