The HHR Editorial Board welcomes submissions of essays, document transcriptions, and book reviews of a historical nature from any discipline.

Manuscripts must be prepared in conformity with The Chicago Manual of Style in 12-point Times Roman font, double-spaced (including footnotes) and with pages numbered.

Submissions should consist of three hard copies delivered, plus a digital copy submitted by email attachment as a Microsoft Word document, to Professor Michael Raley (CLA 113, raleyjm@hanover.edu). Because all submitted manuscripts will be evaluated anonymously, the author's name should appear only on the title page. There should be no identifying markers (including headers and hidden texts) within the body of the paper. Please print your paper on the front sides of the pages only (single-sided).

Articles should not exceed 3,000 words without the prior approval of the HHR editors. Please note that submissions accepted for publication may be edited to conform to the HHR's style. The HHR editors remain the final arbiters of length, grammar, and usage. However, they will endeavor to consult with authors with regard to any changes made in the interest of clarity and economy of expression.

The HHR disclaims responsibility for any statements, either as fact or opinion, made by contributors.
