Agricultural History Review

Cover of current Agricultural History Review

The Society’s flagship periodical is published twice a year, in both print and PDF, and includes articles and book reviews. Part I each year also includes the Annual List of Publications on Agrarian History. The editors welcome articles and books for review on any aspect of the history of agriculture, rural society and rural economy, with especial interest in Britain and Ireland, Europe and North America.



The articles editor is Professor Paul Warde. Articles can be submitted at any time, using the online contact form (choose Journal Articles as the subject). The editor is willing to discuss projected articles with authors before submission and to advise on whether or not the Review would be interested in carrying work on a specific subject. Articles greatly exceeding the Review’s normal word length should be discussed with the editor before submission. Read more about submitting an article.

Please note: We only publish articles on merit, after rigorous peer review. We do not accept payment for publishing articles. We are not associated with ‘University Press Journals’. The only way to submit an article to Agricultural History Review is by the above process.

Access to articles: those published within the last three years are available to BAHS members or affiliates; earlier articles are open access.
