The History Journals Guide is an international directory for journals and
mailing lists in the fields of history and archaeology. History is
understood in a broad sense as the study of the past including all
periods, all regions and all fields. The HJG covers scientific and
popular-scientific, current and ceased, frequently or irregularly
appearing, and interdisciplinary periodicals and lists. The HJG is a part
of the WWW Virtual Library and free accessible for all users worldwide
(http://www.history-journals.de/). You do not have to register to use this
The HJG aims to be a starting point for researchers, graduates, students,
librarians and other interested persons and intends to provide an easy
access to up-to-date information. It is updated regularly.
The Periodicals Directory provides information about content, editors,
publishers, publication dates, frequency, languages of articles, ISSN and
websites. The Discussion Lists Directory informs about content,
subcription, editors, publication dates, languages and websites. Both
directories can be browsed by title, period, region and subject, the
periodicals directory also by language and e-journals. The directories are
also searchable. There is also a bibliography of articles published in
electronic journals for history.
At the moment not all periodicals and discussion lists are described
completely, because the HJG is still a one-man project without financial
or institutional aid. If you want to add or correct any information or if
there is a journal, a mailing list or another website not listed right
now, but you think that it should be, then you can write a mail to
<mailto:hjg@...> or fill out the registration forms at the
website. Please give as much information as possible.
The History Journals News is the electronic newsletter of the HJG and
informs subscribers about new and updated entries. But it publishes also
announcements (i.e. calls for papers, new journals and discussion lists)
and short articles dealing especially with electronic publishing (i.e.
e-journals, electronic distribution of print journals).
