Guidelines for Affiliate News

Perspectives on History publishes news and announcements from affiliated societies each month as space allows. Submissions should be less than 500 words and include contact information. If you have news you would like to share with fellow AHA members, e-mail it to with the subject line “Affiliate News,” or upload it through the Perspectives submission page. Submissions may be edited for length and style.

All submissions accepted for publication will become the property of the American Historical Association and will be subject to the copyright policies of the AHA (which include the AHA’s right to publish the entry in print as well as any other medium).

All submissions must have complete contact information for the author(s). When copyediting articles, Perspectives on History editors use the 16th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style and the 11th edition of Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary. In general, the editors attempt to make an author’s prose as effective as possible, both in the author’s interest and that of Perspectives on History. The editors seek to remove redundancies and errors—if any—in grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
