DUE: Submissions for the Chicago Journal of History Autumn 2018 Edition


Thursday, September 20, 2018 - 10:00am


Chicago Journal of History, the University of Chicago’s undergraduate journal for research in history and related fields in the social sciences and humanities, is accepting submissions for the upcoming Autumn 2018 edition. The Journal’s mission is to provide not only an opportunity for printed and online publication, but also a forum for dedicated undergraduate students of history and related fields from across the country to exchange ideas and share their intellectual passion. The Journal publishes biannually; each issue contains 5-7 original articles selected from a large pool of qualified submissions. All submissions are reviewed rigorously, and selected pieces undergo a collaborative editing process prior to publication.


Submission Guidelines:

  1. The Chicago Journal of History does not impose any particular thematic restrictions on its contributing authors. Submissions may engage any geographic area or thematic content, and adopt any methodological or disciplinary approach, so long as the paper engages with a particular historical topic and its associated historiography.

  2. The editorial board evaluates submissions by their originality, rigor, and style. We welcome papers written for lectures or seminars and work produced through independent research, as well as B.A. theses.

  3. Submissions must be between 15 and 40 double-spaced pages in length, including citations.

  4. Papers should be submitted to ughistoryjournal@gmail.com in an MS Word or PDF attachment (document title: "LastnameFirstinitial_CJH"). The subject line of the email should contain the author’s full name and the title of the submission.

  5. Citations must be formatted using the Chicago Manual of Style notes and bibliography system (for those unfamiliar, please consult the Chicago Manual of Style Quick Guide). Submissions lacking complete citations will be returned unread.

  6. Papers must be submitted by September 20th, 2018, 12:00 PM CST in order to be considered for the Autumn 2018 issue. [N.B.: the date listed on our Facebook Page and website is September 14th, but because of a communication mixup that prevented us from getting an email out to this school and a few others, we're extending it a bit.]

  7. For more information about the journal and to read our previous issues, please visit our website cjh.uchicago.edu [note that due to technical issues, some of the more recent work is instead hosted at https://voices.uchicago.edu/ucjh/].

  8. Feel free to contact the editorial board at ughistoryjournal@gmail.com with any particular questions concerning potential submissions.
