Call for Manuscripts: Journal of Illinois History

full name / name of organization: 
Evelyn R. Taylor, Editor/Illinois Historic Preservation Agency

The Journal of Illinois History seeks manuscripts on all facets of the history of Illinois and its citizens. Contributions in social, political, economic, and cultural history are welcome, as are related midwestern and Civil War topics, the history of the Northwest Territory, and Illinois biography.

Articles for publication are carefully chosen by the editors, who solicit the comments of at least two referees. Articles are judged on their quality and depth of research, originality, significance of the subject matter, and appropriateness for this Journal.

Authors should follow the Chicago Manual of Style (15th edition) in the preparation of Journal manuscripts. Additional guidelines can be viewed at or will be sent upon request. All manuscripts must be typewritten and double-spaced, 20–25 pages in length, with footnotes appearing separately at the end of the text. Authors should submit three copies of each manuscript, and since manuscripts are refereed anonymously, the author's name should appear only on the title page.

All articles will be edited to conform to Journal style, and the editors may make other changes for clarity and word economy. Authors are expected to review typescripts and galleys.
