All submissions will be assessed anonymously.

  • While we accept interdisciplinary papers, submissions should contain significant historical content.
  • We highly recommend that the article contains original research.
  • We are also interested in reviews of academic books.
  • Papers should be reasonably polished prior to submission.
  • No more than two pieces of writing per person per publishing cycle (semester).
  • The paper should be formatted in Chicago Manual of Style, or will need to reformatted to Chicago Manual of Style prior to publication.

If you're submitting a research paper written in a foreign language, a separate form of assessment is required. Please complete the Foreign Language Submission Form as well as the Foreign Language Review Form, and turn them into the current co-conveners of the Earlham Historical Journal.

The Editorial Process

After your paper is accepted members of the editorial board will be assigned to edit your paper and provide feedback. They will meet with you one or more times to discuss these edits and help you improve your paper. An edited version of your paper must be sent to the editorial board by the due date (typically 3-4 weeks after edits are provided). While you do not need to make all suggested edits, and are certainly free to disagree with your editors about what changes should be made, the editorial board reserves the right to reject papers if major flaws remain in the final version of your paper.
