'Historical Journal Special Issues' will be published annually and will be collections of cutting-edge articles linked by an overarching theme of wide interest across the historical profession.
'Historical Journal Special Issues' are expected to come out at around 100,000 words in length. We expect an article-length introduction to the supplement. We expect editors to aim for gender balance among contributors. Selected special issues will go through full peer review and will only be accepted for publication at the discretion of the editors of The Historical Journal.
The editors of The Historical Journal are very happy to answer informal queries. The call for proposals for Special Issues is now closed as we have received a good number of high quality proposals but the editors are happy to be in initial touch with those wishing to propose future issues, for publication after 2020.
