IHR Shorts

IHR Shorts is a new experimental series of concise and insightful commentaries on topical historical subjects. The series is designed to cater for new research that's best communicated in a form that's longer than a journal article but shorter than a monograph.

All titles are published online and available free as Open Access downloads.

About the series

In September 2018 the IHR launched its new ‘Shorts’ series. Insightful and concise, IHR Shorts offer incisive commentaries on contemporary historical debates. Titles range from 15,000 to 50,000 words with a focus on interdisciplinary approaches to the past.

IHR Shorts provide new opportunities for high-quality, peer reviewed scholarly writing at lengths other than those of the traditional journal article, chapter or monograph. We welcome proposals for long-form essays shading into short monographs and concise essay collections. All titles are published Open Access by the IHR and the University of London Press.
