History Scotland magazine – call for contributions

2b3cde89-d74c-4b02-aeac-40b427b2b608

History Scotland is the world’s premier Scottish history magazine, with a worldwide readership. We cover thousands of years of the country’s history, from prehistoric times through to the 20th century, and publish articles on Scotland’s history, archaeology and heritage.

We welcome ideas for news items and short features, which can be submitted to the Editor, Rachel Bellerby, by e-mail, as detailed in the attached style guide.

The Consultant Editor, Dr Allan Kennedy, is happy to receive longer submissions for potential publication as main feature articles. Although many of the authors of our in-depth features are university academics, we are also delighted to consider contributions from students, independent researchers and history/heritage professionals. Submissions can cover any aspect of the Scottish past since prehistory, but they should be formatted according to the style guide and e-mailed.

To see a selection of topics and themes from the past eight years of History Scotland, browse the magazine covers of our digital edition
