About Historical Research
First published in 1923, Historical Research (formerly the Bulletin of the Institute of Historical Research) is one of the UK's leading academic history journals. From 2020 the journal is published by Oxford University Press, with a new design and a new international editorial board.
Historical Research publishes the work of established scholars and assists early career researchers with their first articles.
- Articles cover a wide geographical and temporal span: from Britain to the Far East, the early middle ages to the early 21st century.
- We encourage the submission of articles from a variety of approaches and methodologies, including social, political, urban, intellectual and cultural history.
- Our journal reserves space for the publication of important short notes and documents.
- Articles are usually up to 14,000 words including references, but longer articles are published in exceptional circumstances.
Further information on submitting an article, our Open Access policy, and subscription options is available from Oxford University Press.
