The peer-reviewed quarterly journal Historical Methods reaches an international audience of historians and other social scientists concerned with historical problems. The journal welcomes contributions that explore interdisciplinary approaches to new data sources, new approaches to older questions and material, and practical discussions of computer and statistical methodology, data collection, and sampling procedures.
The journal has recently introduced the following features:
Evidence Matters emphasizes how to find, decipher, and analyze evidence whether or not that evidence is meant to be quantified.
Database Developments announces major new public databases or large alterations in older ones, discusses innovative ways to organize them, and explains new ways of categorizing information.
Perfecting Data addresses generic deficiencies in historical data and suggests ways to alleviate them.
Historical Methods has published a number of theme issues, including “Measuring Art: A Scientific Revolution in Art History,” “Identity and Demography,” “Building Historical Data Infrastructure: New Projects of the Minnesota Population Center,” and “Evaluating Ecological Inference.”
Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts electronically. Please confirm that manuscripts have been submitted solely to Historical Methods.
