Quentin Skinner's early work was supported by the HJ
The Historical Journal was founded in 1958, and covers all aspects of British, European and world history since 1500, soliciting contributions from all parts of the world. It publishes over 30 articles a year (making it one of the largest history journals), and seeks to be a venue for young scholars' 'debut' articles, aiming to judge the quality of a piece, and not the alleged 'eminence' of the author.
It also has a tradition of reviewing history books mainly through historiographical
review essays, rather than short individual reviews, thus providing
valuable surveys of recent work in a particular field.
An example of this is Amanda Vickery's 'Golden Age to Separate Spheres?’
(1993), the HJ’s most cited piece, which challenged a number
of assumptions in feminist historiography. [This piece is currently
