Federal History, journal of the Society for History in the Federal Government (SHFG), seeks articles for its 2020 issue. Federal History features scholarship on the history of the U.S. federal government, including military history, 1776–present. The journal also welcomes articles on methodological issues in federal historical work, including institutional history, archival science, historic preservation, museum studies, oral history, memory studies, web-based history, and other related areas.
We welcome manuscripts from SHFG members and scholars researching any aspect of federal government history, as well as independent scholars and historians working in public history. Federal History is an open-access journal, with print copies sent to SHFG members.
