Historians in the News

Oxford University Press (OUP) is honored to have been selected by the Organization of American Historians to be the publisher of the Journal of American History and the Magazine of History.

“History lies at the very core of our publishing program and mission, and we therefore welcome the pre-eminent journal in American history and the innovative Magazine of History with open arms, and with many ideas about how we can work together to increase their already formidable influence,” noted Niko Pfund, VP/Publisher for Academic, Trade, and Journals in the US. “Furthermore, at a time of some instability in publishing, as business models are changing, and predictions of another wave of publisher consolidation fill the air, it is essential that publications as important as these enjoy a stable home at a publisher that shares its vision and values.”

David A. Hollinger, OAH President, stated that “The Organization of American Historians is pleased to be partnering with Oxford University Press and is confident that this alliance will ensure consistent excellence in the production and distribution of the Journal of American History and the Magazine of History.”

The full publishing partnership will begin in 2011, with on-line hosting beginning in July 2010.

OUP continues to strengthen its publishing programme with the addition of the Journal of American History and the Magazine of History to its journal collection. Other acquisitions so far in 2010 include the Infectious Diseases Society of America’s Clinical Infectious Disease and The Journal of Infectious Diseases as well as the Quarterly Journal of Economics and The Review of Economic Studies.
