The Journal

History Studies  is the only history journal in Ireland that is edited and managed by postgraduate students and provides a publishing platform for both undergraduate and postgraduate scholars. It is refereed by a panel of distinguished historians and is an established periodical in the field of historical scholarship.

Established in 1999, History Studies has appeared nearly annually since then. Volume 13 (2012) is the first volume to be distributed online in addition to the traditional print edition, since then the Journal has appeared in both print and digital form. This website provides free access to past volumes (see dedicated volume tabs), an index to authors and articles (Index to past volumes) and an index to past and present editors (Index to editors).

In addition, the journal is launched every year in the University of Limerick. Volume 17 was launched on Wednesday 19 April 2017. Details of that launch can be found at
