Ideas in History is a double-blind peer reviewed journal. Ideas in History publishes papers in all areas of intellectual history. Pieces should generally be 8-12,000 words long. Pieces will be received by the journal’s editorial assistant and forwarded to the editorial board for initial review. Upon approval by the editorial board, pieces will then be sent for blind peer review.
Ideas in History uses the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed., author-date system for references. Ideas in History subscribes to the principle of global English; manuscripts may be submitted in any self-consistent national form of English as concerns spelling, grammar and syntax. For placement of quotation marks, spellings of dates, capitalization conventions, placement of references, page numbering conventions and the compilation of the reference list, authors are referred to the Chicago Manual. The reference list should be labeled "References."
Manuscripts should be submitted in Times New Roman 12. Footnotes, when necessary, should be used instead of endnotes and be formatted in Times New Roman 10. Manuscripts should be line spaced at either 1.5 or 2.0.
