History Compass, a major new electronic journal recently launched by Blackwell Publishing in association with the Institute of Historical Research (London), is looking for original essays concerning nineteenth-century U.S. history.
Essays should review new developments in the historiography, offer fresh interpretations of important topics, or evaluate useful sources and documents for teaching. They should be written for scholars and teachers who are not necessarily specialists in the field.
Essays may be of varying lengths (1000-1500, 5000, or 8000 words). The longer essays are fully peer reviewed. Examples of the types of articles published by History-Compass can be found on the demonstration website (web address listed below).
Please address preliminary suggestions and proposals to Adam Rothman (contact information provided below), including an indication of the length of essay you wish to write. Subsequently those wishing to write longer essays will be asked to submit a one-page abstract.
