Maryland Historical Magazine

Maryland Historical Magazine

The Maryland Historical Magazine, a peer-reviewed journal, enjoys one of the largest readerships of any state historical journal in the nation. Over its 113 years, it has developed strong ties to the scholarly community. Despite the distance usually separating local and academic history, the magazine strives to bring together the "professional" and the "popular" to engage a broad audience while publishing high-quality research on Maryland and the region.

The editors welcome contributions that broaden and deepen understanding of Maryland’s history. Submissions should raise good questions, build on newly discovered or reexamined evidence and present interesting and readable findings. Amateur historians and scholars are asked to follow contributors’ guidelines.

The Magazine also includes reviews of new scholarly historical works by other publishers and accepts selected advertising.
