About the Journal of American History

The Journal of American History is a journal of record in the field that has been publishing groundbreaking research and analysis in American history for over a century.

Excellence in Scholarship

The Journal of American History is the leading scholarly publication and the journal of record in the field of American history. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the Organization of American Historians each March, June, September, and December, for more than a century the Journal has presented original articles on American history. Each volume features a variety of pieces that deal with every aspect of American history, including state-of-the-field essays, broadly inclusive book reviews, and reviews of films, public history installations, and digital history projects.

The Journal is at the cutting edge of the Organization of American Historians’ mission of promoting excellence in the scholarship, teaching, and presentation of American history, and encouraging wide discussion of historical questions and equitable treatment of all practitioners of history. The JAH promotes discussion through articles, online conversations on historical fields or topics published as Interchanges, and the “Textbooks and Teaching” section published each March, which brings together scholars and researchers to think about how history is taught.
