History News connects the people engaged in history work to new questions, ideas, perspectives, and each other. By featuring news, current issues, trends, and best practices from throughout the history community, it informs, inspires, challenges, and links together those who preserve and interpret the past. Article manuscripts dealing with all aspects of public history are welcome, including current trends, timely issues, and best practices for professional development and the overall improvement of the history field.

Volunteer peer reviewers assess all proposals for relevance and timeliness to the field. Articles should be 2,500-3,000 words in length, and properly footnoted and cited in Chicago/Turabian style. History News employs a double-blind review process. 


History News is a quarterly membership publication of the American Association for State and Local History, a nonprofit educational membership organization providing leadership, service, and support for its members who preserve and interpret state and local history in order to make the past more meaningful in American society.
