Author Guidelines

Authors may submit an article for consideration online via this site or by direct email to the editor at

Papers submitted for publication should be between 5-8,500 words. Citations should be provided as footnotes, following the current edition of the Chicago Manual of Style for footnotes. Please double space and use Times New Roman 12-point font. Do not include an extra space between paragraphs. No headers/footers (including page #s). All authors should also include a 200 word abstract of the article's contents, and a brief biography.

Submissions must be received by 1 September for consideration in the Winter issue and by 1 February for consideration in the Summer issue.

There are no fees payable by the authors.

Please Note: Our Winter 2017 issue is slated to be released in conjunction with the New Jersey Historical Commission's November 2016 conference, and will be a themed issue mirroring the topic of the conference: The 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service (NPS) and issues relating to environmental history in New Jersey. Preference will be given to papers related to the theme.
