The Journal of the Oxford University History Society was established as a medium for the publication and dissemination of original and inter-disciplinary historical research. The first issue of the journal was published in Michaelmas Term 2003. It is an online peer-reviewed journal run by students under the aegis of the Oxford University History Society (OUHS). It aims to: reflect the activities and interests of OUHS; establish scholarly links in the varied community of historians at the University of Oxford; to serve as a discussion forum for the international community of undergraduates, postgraduate students, and established academics.
The journal publishes online both graduate and undergraduate papers across all periods and geographies in history, as well as related disciplines such as archaeology, classics, and history of art. In addition, the journal welcomes contributions in the form of book/film/podcast reviews, interviews with historians and reports of OUHS events.
We are currently accepting submissions for the 2023/2024 issues.
We welcome submissions from both within and outside of Oxford.
