Columbia Undergraduate Journal of History

The Columbia Undergraduate Journal of History accepts nominations in September from professors of outstanding research papers produced by undergraduates. This is a great opportunity for undergraduate history students to have their work reviewed, edited, and potentially published. If there are any papers you feel may be worthy of publication or any senior theses of note, please send the names of the students and their contact information to cujh@columbia.edu. From the nominated papers, the editors will select five to six articles to be published in the Journal, and the top three authors will be invited to the Herbert Aptheker Undergraduate History Conference at Columbia University to give talks on their research. The authors invited to the History Conference will also receive a small honorarium.

History Matters, Appalachian State University

History Matters is an undergraduate history journal, published online annually by the Department of History at Appalachian State University. The journal is edited by undergraduates with the help of a faculty board. At History Matters, our goal is to publish the best undergraduate historical research possible. In doing so, we would like to provide an opportunity for top undergraduates from a variety of schools to be recognized for their work, familiarize them with the publishing process, and encourage student-faculty collaboration. We hope that all students who take part in this process will become better writers and self-editors. In all of our endeavors, we are committed to publishing the papers of students who have worked hard and deserve recognition. We are especially seeking research papers that utilize primary sources. Submissions are due in January.
