Northeastern Historical Review
Northeastern University's Journal of Undergraduate Research in History

Welcome to the Northeastern Historical Review!

The Northeastern Historical Review is a student-run, peer-reviewed undergraduate research journal founded to provide opportunities for Northeastern students to contribute to the field of history. Our goal is to promote intellectual inquiry and scholarly debate while giving our students the freedom to explore and engage with their historical passions. No particular topics are given precedence over others; in the past, students have written about such diverse topics as the Ionian Revolt in ancient Greece and American slavery during the time of Alexander Hamilton. 

In our print journal, we publish a set of research articles ranging from 5000 to 8000 words each year. These papers are often written in seminars and research practicums, and are expected to provide original research on a specific area within history. If accepted, the articles undergo a peer-review process within our organization before publication.  The deadline for our 2024 edition will be April 23, 2024, and the submissions link will open toward the end of the fall semester.

Additionally, we have a staff writing and a staff editing team that publishes and edits short informational columns ranging from 800 to 1300 words on our website over the course of the year. They can be found here. If you are interested in joining either of these teams, please fill out the application here.
