New Jersey History, founded as the Proceedings of the New Jersey Historical Society in 1845 and published under the direction of the Society until 2005, will be re-launched under the editorial direction of historians at the New Jersey Historical Commission, Kean University, and the Society. This peer-reviewed journal will be published twice annually. The editorial staff invites scholars, students, and writers to submit scholarly articles aimed at a non-specialized audience for its forthcoming issues. We welcome papers from all disciplines—for example, law, literature, political science, anthropology, archaeology, material culture, cultural studies, and social and political history—bearing on any aspects of New Jersey’s history. Articles that place that history in wider relevant contexts will be especially welcome. We are also interested in documents, photographs, and other primary source material that could be published with annotations.
Papers submitted for publication should not exceed 8,000 words and should follow the current edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Completed submissions must also include a 200 word abstract of the article’s contents.
Suitable submissions are refereed anonymously by at least two readers. All materials should be submitted electronically in Word or RTF (as an attachment to an e-mail), with the author's name appearing only on the title page of the manuscript. All text, including quotations and footnotes, should be prepared in double-spaced typescript according to The Chicago Manual. Please provide your full address, including e-mail, in all correspondence. A manuscript that has been published or that is currently under consideration for publication elsewhere should not be submitted.
