According to their website, The American Historical Review (AHR) continues to have the highest “impact factor” among history journals (via the latest Journal Citation Reports from Thomson Reuters). A publication of the American Historical Association, the AHR seeks to provide the most insightful historical content from experienced researchers. Whether you’re looking for a film review, a critique of capitalism, or a collection of colonial law, the AHR can point you in the right direction.

If you prefer the spoken word, the AHR also hosts a podcast called AHR Interview. Episodes are available on SoundCloud.

The library provides free, online access to the AHR via our Journals section. History majors, check it out!
