Journal of Mormon History
Manuscripts should make a significant contribution to the knowledge of Mormonism through new interpretations and/or new information. Acceptance is based on originality, use of primary sources, literary quality, accuracy and relevance.
Articles should be approximately 10,000 words in length, although shorter works will be considered. The journal will not accept submissions over 15,000 words in length. Reprints and simultaneous submissions are not accepted.
The journal uses the Chicago Manual of Style (17th edition). Articles should use footnotes. For additional information, see the style guide at http://mormonhistoryassociation.org
In addition to traditional articles, the journal publishes round tables and shorter essays analyzing particularly significant (and not widely known) documents, photographs, and material culture, as well as historiographical essays. These shorter essays should be approximately 2000-4000 words.
The editors welcome suggestions for potential topics of roundtables and shorter essays before they are submitted.
