About the Journal


Published quarterly since 1985, each issue of the OAH Magazine of History focuses on a theme in U.S. history. Articles draw upon recent scholarship, survey the historiography, and provide practical resources for classroom teaching. Guest edited and written by subject specialists, the OAH Magazine is aimed at a wide audience. Its goal is to enhance the teaching and presentation of U.S. history in secondary and college classrooms, as well as in public history settings.


The OAH Magazine of History has ceased its publication with the October 2013 issue. This decision was based on many considerations, among them the realization that increasing numbers of high school teachers access historical resources online and the need to provide a publication that will serve the OAH membership more effectively.

Online access to the MOH archives will remain an OAH membership benefit.

Please note that the journal remains available to non-members on a pay-per-view basis, with access available to complete issues on a 24hr basis.
