Editorial Policy

The editors of the Missouri Historical Review welcome submission of articles and annotated documents relating to the history of Missouri. Any aspect of Missouri history will be considered for publication in the Review. Manuscripts pertaining to all fields of American history will be considered if the subject matter has significant relevance to the history of Missouri, the Middle West, or the West. Genealogical studies are not accepted because of limited appeal to general readers.

Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts electronically, preferably in Microsoft Word. Text and notes should be double-spaced, with notes prepared according to The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed. Originality of subject, general interest of the article, sources used, interpretation, and style are criteria for acceptance and publication. Manuscript length, exclusive of notes, should be between 4,000 and 8,000 words. Each submission should be accompanied by a curriculum vita. The editorial staff will not evaluate manuscripts that have been published elsewhere or are under consideration at another publication. Articles that are accepted for publication become the property of The State Historical Society of Missouri and may not be published elsewhere without permission. The Society does not accept responsibility for statements of fact or opinion made by authors or book reviewers.

Manuscripts should be sent to Lynn Wolf Gentzler, Editor, Missouri Historical Review, at gentzlerl@umsystem.edu or The State Historical Society of Missouri, 1020 Lowry Street, Columbia, MO 65201-7298.
