Each year we publish close to 250 in-house publications, along with over 100 H-Diplo H-Net reviews. We regularly review articles from Cold War History, Diplomatic History, Intelligence and National Security, International History Review, International Journal, International Security, Journal of American East Asian Studies, Journal of Cold War Studies, Journal of Strategic Studies, Journal of Transatlantic Studies, and Security Studies.

Assignments can be divided along areas of specialty and research interest, on both geographical and methodological terms, and we are also happy to assign specific journals to specific areas.
