Call for Articles – The Historian

The Historian is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal with a global readership and an eighty-year history of publishing articles of the highest quality across the discipline’s many fields and foci. The journal welcomes manuscripts on 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.

Submissions are expected to meet the highest standards of academic quality, have an original point, be in dialogue with the relevant literature, and either be based on new source material, or constitute an exhaustive and critical overview of the historiography of a particular topic. Article manuscripts should normally be between 6,000 and 8,000 words, not including notes. The latter should be footnotes, not endnotes, and conform to The Chicago Manual of Style, 14th edition. Manuscripts can be submitted electronically as e-mail attachments (formatted in MSWord) to Authors should also attach a separate MSWord file with the title, an abstract of no more than 100 words, and their contact information. The author’s name should appear only on the title page.

The journal’s manuscript policy can be found on its website:
