How to submit an article

Articles to Historical Research should be submitted online via ScholarOne Manuscripts

Historical Research operates a double-blind refereeing process. Submitted texts should be suitably anonymized. Acknowledgements and personal references should not be included. These can be incorporated later if the article is accepted for publication.

The article should be accompanied by an abstract of around 100 words indicating its scope, method of investigation and sources, conclusions reached and the contribution it makes to knowledge of the subject. 

Copyright and Open Access

Historical Research is a hybrid journal offering Gold and Green Open Access options.

Authors can choose Online Open (full Open Access, subject to author processing charge, normally paid by the author’s funder or institution) or sign a copyright transfer agreement.

Authors can choose OnlineOpen, our publisher’s Open Access option, or sign a copyright transfer agreement.
