Haven't heard about the journal yet?

In June 2015, the New Jersey Historical Commission and Rutgers University Libraries, in partnership with Monmouth University, launched a new, peer-reviewed journal that publishes the most recent scholarship and educational materials about New Jersey’s history and more.

Titled New Jersey Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal, it is available free of charge. The Journal is published twice annually, in the Winter and Summer. Contents include peer-reviewed articles, invited talks, featured archival documents and artifacts, teachers’ guides, book, exhibit, and film reviews; and more. The journal also publishes select award-winning graduate and undergraduate student papers.

Metrics show that to date, the Journal has thousands of readers from around the globe, to include far flung locations such as China, Germany, Egypt, India, and Malaysia-- to name just a few!

A debt of gratitude is owed to all contributors, to the editorial board, and to the many peer reviewers who have generously volunteered their time to ensure all material published is of the highest quality.
