But don’t commit hara-kiri just yet, because your friends at the AHA are trying to make it easier for you to get your research published. How? By creating an online database that provides helpful links to English-language journals that publish in various fields of history. We call it the “Publish Your Paper!” website. Once it’s up and running, you’ll be able to click on a category (African-American history, for example) and the submission information for several journals related to that specialty will pop right up. No more time-consuming searches on the Internet!
Of course, no one’s perfect. With so many different specialties to deal with, we’ll likely leave out a few things. That’s why we welcome your ongoing comments/suggestions on how we can continually improve this service. If you ever see something that needs to be changed, simply drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to accommodate your wishes. You’ve expended enough energy researching and writing your paper; let us help you find a place to publish it.
“Publish Your Paper!” will be available through the AHA website in March 2007.
Update: This online database is now called “Directory of History Journals” and is available for use.
