JAH Podcast

The podcast section of the JAH Web site (http://jah.oah.org/podcast/) houses interviews with several JAH authors. Our most recent podcast features Tyson Reeder talking about his September 2016 article, “‘Sovereign Lords’ and ‘Dependent Administrators’: Artigan Privateers, Atlantic Borderwaters, and State Building in the Early Nineteenth Century.” We will regularly be posting interviews with other JAH authors as well.

In the future we hope also to bring you podcasts of conversations with award-winning authors of books on American history. Anyone may listen to and download these high-quality audio files for free.

Article Submissions

All articles submitted to the Journal of American History must include an abstract. The abstract must be on a separate page from the body of the article and may not be longer than 500 words.

Submit or Update Your Reviewer Data Sheet

The Journal of American History is always looking for qualified reviewers for books and articles. To make the best matches between reviewers and books or articles being reviewed, we need our reviewer information to be as complete and up-to-date as possible. It is crucial that prospective reviewers submit or update a JAH reviewer data sheet, which indicates areas of expertise and publications and is available on our Web site at http://jah.oah.org/submit/datasheet/.
