Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  • The submission file is in Microsoft Word or Open Office format.

Author Guidelines

We welcome articles and research notes from emerging scholars in all historical disciplines.

Authors have the option of submitting articles in one of two formats:

1. Research Articles

  • based on original primary source research and grounded in relevant literature
  • approx. 20-25 pages (5000-6500 words)

2. Research Notes

  • reflective essays, works-in-progress, and “think pieces”
  • not necessarily based on primary source analysis, but must demonstrate an element of originality
  • designed to garner comments and feedback
  • approx. 7-10 pages (2500 words)

Both types of submissions are peer-reviewed.

Blind Submissions

To ensure that your submission is reviewed anonymously, please remove all references to your name, university affiliation, or any other identifying markers from your writing. Be careful to ensure that any identifying metadata or document property has also been removed from the file you submit.
