The academic journal New York History, now being published by Cornell University Press working with staff from the New York State Museum, seeks to unify the diverse field of New York State history and meet the needs of a growing historical community that includes scholars, public historians, museum professionals, local government historians, and those seeking an in-depth look at the Empire State’s history.
New York History strives to promote and interpret the state’s history through the publication of historical research and case studies dealing with New York State, as well as its relationship to national and international events. The journal, published twice a year, presents articles dealing with every aspect of New York State history, and reviews of books, exhibitions, and media projects with a New York focus. The Editorial Board is currently soliciting articles, essays, reports from the field and case studies that support this mission.
Submitted articles should address, in an original fashion, some aspect of New York State history. Articles that deal with the history of other areas or with general American history must have a direct bearing on New York State history. It is assumed that the article will have some new, previously unexploited material to offer or will present new insights or new interpretations. Suggested length is 20-30 double spaced pages (or between 6,000 and 9,000 words), including footnotes. All submitted articles must include a 100-word abstract summarizing the article and providing keywords (no more than 10). Authors must submit articles electronically, with all text in Word and all tables, figures, and images in formats supported by Microsoft Windows. Provision of images in proper resolution (no less than 300 dpi at 5” x 7”), securing requisite permissions, and the payment of any fees associated with images for articles are all the responsibility of the author.
Original works of scholarship related to the history of New York State, as well as information related to new publications, exhibits, and online material can be sent of NYHJ@nysed.gov.
