In evaluating submissions, the editors look for evidence of historical significance, analysis, evidence, and clarity. The journal’s peer reviewers evaluate manuscripts in light of the following kinds of questions: 1) Does the author effectively establish the significance of the manuscript by providing a new interpretation of the topic, examining new evidence, or advancing a new theoretical perspective? 2) Does the author critically analyze and reassess existing scholarship based on recent findings, new methodologies, new theories, or original questions? 3) Is the research sufficiently grounded in primary as well as secondary sources? 4) Is the manuscript logically organized and well written?
This journal uses a double-anonymised model of peer review. Neither author nor reviewers know the identity of each other.
