In addition to academic paper submissions by history students, we welcome contributions from a range of scholarly fields, and from all levels of education - both within and outside of academia. History Collective promotes interdisciplinary research, as long as the topic is related to history. We accept written work on all historical eras. Submissions must uphold our vision.
Any submission to our journal must be between 2.000 and 6.000 words (excl. footnotes, appendices, and bibliography) and should be an unpublished original work. Your referencing must follow the Chicago Manual of Style (notes-bibliography).
Articles must be written in English. Grammar or language mistakes are not frowned upon, provided that the work is readable and demonstrates a sufficient level of research. Be mindful and use respectful language; submissions promoting hate speech are not allowed.
Your work must be submitted to us via email.
Any submissions we receive outside our email inbox will not be accepted and reviewed.
After we receive your submission, the work will be subjected to a single blind peer review. In case we decide to publish your work, you will be notified. History Collective accepts multiple submissions per person, but we will only publish one of your works per issue. We may preserve your other works for a future issue, unless you have specified otherwise.
Below you fill find a downloadable PDF document containing all the submission guidelines as well as a formatted outline of a paper. We have created these PDFs for your ease, so you will never have to lose them. We recommend you carefully read them first, and if needed contact us here with any additional inquiries.
