Labor History, the pre-eminent journal of American labor studies for the past forty-four years, seeks high quality article submissions in all areas of historical labor studies. The journal is committed to recruiting and showcasing the work of labor historians, industrial relations scholars, economic historians, political scientists, historical sociologists, labor economists social movement theorists, business historians and all others who write about labor in historical perspective. Labor History also seeks scholarship that provides the journal with geographical and chronological breadth. It recruits work on labor in Europe, Latin America, Africa, Asia, and around the globe. Labor History is equally desirous of scholarship that addresses questions of labor in the eighteenth century as with scholarship illuminating contemporary events and issues.
Authors whose work is accepted will automatically be considered for the Labor History Royalty Fund Prizes. A panel comprised of the Editor and members of the Editorial Board will award cash prizes in the following categories at the end of each volume: Best Article on a US Topic; Best Article on Non-US or Comparative Topic; and Best Article by a Junior Scholar (within five years the award of a PhD). All contributors to Labor History will receive the guarantees of our innovative Authors’ Bill of Rights, which, among other things, commits the journal to the fair and speedy review of articles, free from political bias. Labor History is included in the “History of Social Sciences” and “Industrial and Labor Relations” categories of the Social Science Citation Index. Full-length manuscripts should not exceed 8500 words, plus notes. Labor History asks two referees to review each manuscript without reference to the author’s name or institutional affiliation.
