The Journal of Global History aims to be the leading scholarly outlet for comparative and connective accounts of world historical significance. JGH publishes articles that examine structures, processes and theories of global change, inequality and stability, as well as articles focusing on smaller scales that are in keeping with, or transcend, the boundaries of historical polities or environments. JGH particularly values creativity and originality in approaches to global history, as well as debates on the theories, methods and evidence underpinning major historical narratives.
