About the Journal

ISSN 2374-0647

Focus and Scope

The Journal publishes original scholarship on all aspects of NJ studies, grounded in historical context. We strongly encourage submissions that help to tell the stories of people, groups, places, and events commonly excluded from dominant historical narratives; or that give new perspectives on familiar stories. 

Peer Review Process

All article submissions undergo a double-blind peer review process, with each being evaluated by two scholars with expertise in the subject matter. Articles are deemed "Publish with minor revisions" "Revise and Resubmit" or "Reject as Unpublishable."


Publication Frequency

We will publish two issues per year, in the Summer and Winter.
