American Historical Review

American Historical Review

The "American Historical Review" ("AHR") is the official publication of the American Historical Association (AHA), a body of academics, professors, teachers, students, historians, curators and others, founded in 1884 "for the promotion of historical studies, the collection and preservation of historical documents and artifacts, and the dissemination of historical research." The "AHR" targets readers interested in all periods and facets of history, not (as some might assume, given the name) only or even primarily those with a professional interest in American History.

The "AHR" is published in February, April, June, October and December as a book-like academic publication with research papers and book reviews, among other items (each issue typically runs to about 400 pages). Each year in the "AHR" there are approximately 25 articles and review essays and 1,000 book reviews. Founded in 1895, it refers to itself as the "journal of record for the history profession in the United States", and has approximately 18,000 subscribers, mostly university and college libraries and history professors.

The "AHR"'s editorial offices are located at Indiana University at Bloomington, where a small staff produces the publication under the guidance of a 12-member advisory board. Starting with the October 2007 issue (Volume 112, Number 4), the "AHR" has been published by the University of Chicago Press.
