What we publish: The Archival History News will publish a variety of items which meet the approval of the editors, including submissions, contributions, and links to content on other websites. The editors are open to new ideas and first-time submissions are always welcome.
When we publish: Submissions are accepted for review on a rolling basis, though publishing to the website will occur on a schedule. The editors anticipate releasing new materials at least every four months.
Archival History News is NOT a peer-reviewed journal: An author who submits works for publication should expect to have their work(s) reviewed and proofread by the editors, which may include blind review by outside editorial consultants, depending on the complexity of the topic or languages involved. Some submissions may be readied for publication with little or no editorial intervention, while others may be rejected outright. An author whose work needs editorial help or receives notice of rejection will receive an explanation from the editors in a timely manner (no more than 45 days from submission).
While authors should submit works not otherwise published elsewhere, there is no obligation on accepted authors of Archival History News to regard their submissions as the exclusive property of Archival History News. However, authors should cite Archival History News in later re-use of materials when it substantially replicates content published in Archival History News.
Accepted Formats: Documents may be submitted in three formats: Word documents, MAC Book documents, and editable PDFs. Digital images should be submitted as JPEGs.
Style: Chicago Manual of Style is the preferred means of citation. The main body of text should be 12 pt. Calibri with endnotes in 10 pt. Calibri.
