Federal History

Federal History is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal published annually online and in print by the Society for History in the Federal Government in Washington, DC. The journal promotes scholarship on all aspects of the history and operations of the federal government, and of critical historical interactions between American society and the U.S. government, including the U.S. military, 1776 to the present. It also publishes articles investigating contemporary issues and challenges in federal history work, including the fields of history, archival science, historic preservation, public history, museum studies, web–based history, memory studies, and other related areas. The journal highlights studies by historians working in or for federal agencies as well as independent scholars, many of which originate as presentations at the Society’s annual conference in the Washington, DC, area.

Issues are published in April and then posted online with full access, with print copies sent to members. The journal was begun in 2009, and all issues are available for download
