Submissions

The submission deadline for our next volume is Dec. 20, 2021.

History Matters welcomes submission of historical research from all undergraduate students. Please follow these guidelines when submitting papers:

  • All papers should be submitted by email as MSWord documents to historymatters@appstate.edu.
  • Papers can be up to 50 pages in length, double-spaced. Footnotes or endnotes should be single-spaced.
  • All papers must include footnotes or endnotes and a bibliography listing both primary and secondary sources. These must conform to the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style.
  • We ask each author to include a cover page detailing their name, university affiliation, email address, current mailing address, and phone number. To ensure anonymous review, such identifying information must not appear on any other page of your submission (including  headers and footers). The cover page does not count toward the page limit.
  • Only one submission per student will be reviewed.
  • We do not accept papers either already published or previously submitted to this journal.
  • Note that a request for revision does not guarantee publication.
  • If the paper you submit to History Matters is accepted for publication in another journal, please let us know.

Please see the FAQ for more information about the types of papers we are seeking. The editors welcome any questions at historymatters@appstate.edu.
