The Historian welcomes submissions of scholarly essays
"The Historian," a peer-reviewed journal published since 1938, welcomes manuscripts submitted by historians in all regional, temporal and thematic fields of history.
Submissions should be of interest to a wide readership. Manuscripts that have been published elsewhere, or that are being considered for publication elsewhere, will not be considered.
Manuscripts should normally be between 6,000 and 8,000 words, exclusive of footnotes. The latter should be footnotes, not endnotes, and conform to The Chicago Manual of Style, 14th edition. Submissions are expected to meet the highest standards of academic quality, have an original point, be in dialogue with all the relevant scholarly literature, and either be based on new source material, or constitute an exhaustive and critical overview of the historiography of a particular topic. They need to be written in flawless English, and provided with accurate and precise footnotes indicating the sources of the argumentation.
A completed manuscript, double-spaced with one-inch margins (right margin unjustified) is required for submission. Please send one copy of the article in MSWord as e-mail attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. The authorís name should be included on title page only. Authors should also send a one-hundred-word summary abstract of their article and their e-mail addresses.
Evaluation of manuscripts generally requires four to six months. We encourage inclusion of photographs, maps, and other illustrative material, which must be provided in camera-ready form, with authorization from copyright holders for these materialsí reproduction in "The Historian." Manuscripts are edited for organization, clarity, and consistency.
