HistoryEdit

The journal was founded in 1923 as The Cambridge Historical Journal by Harold Temperley. It obtained its present title in 1958 when the journal editors decided to adopt a more global perspective.[2] Despite choosing to omit the Cambridge label from the latter date, it remained under the editorial leadership of the History Faculty at the University of Cambridge, as it does to this day.

Its current editors are Sujit Sivasundaram (Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge), Andrew Preston (Clare College, Cambridge) and Phil Withington (University of Sheffield).

ScopeEdit

The Journal aims to publish around thirty-five articles and book reviews each year.

AbstractingEdit

The Historical Journal is abstracted by Historical Abstracts, Periodicals Index Online, and ABELL.
