Looking for Journal Articles?

The journal literature in history is divided geographically between two major databases: America: History & Life covers journal articles about the United States and Canada, and Historical Abstracts covers journal literature for world history outside the U.S. and Canada, 1450-present.  Don't forget that books are the most important publishing format for historians, so don't stop with journal articles in your research!

  • America: History & Life
    Historical coverage of the United States and Canada from prehistory to the present.
  • Historical Abstracts
    Historical coverage of the world from 1450 to the present (excluding the United States and Canada, which are covered in America: History and Life).
  • Additional Databases
    For more databases with journal articles in history, some specialized by geography or time period, visit the Find Articles menu tab of this guide.
