About This Journal
Since 1939 The Journal of Mississippi History has been publishing lively and engaging articles by distinguished scholars on the history of the state, the Lower Mississippi Valley, and the South. Topics range from Native Americans and prehistoric archaeology to the Territorial years, from the Civil War to the civil rights movement. Many issues also contain book reviews and news of people and events in the Mississippi history community.
The journal is published by the Mississippi Department of Archives and History in cooperation with the Mississippi Historical Society. Annual subscriptions begin at $35 for individuals/organizations. To submit an article for consideration, please contact Dennis Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org. Preferred manuscript length is 25-30 pages (double-spaced), exclusive of footnotes. Illustrations–photographs, drawings, maps, tables–that enhance the article should be included and placed in the text. The Chicago Manual of Style should be followed for grammar and formatting footnotes. Submissions are peer-reviewed to determine whether to accept for publication.
Back issues of the journal are available from the Mississippi History Store. Recent issues are $7.50, and issues published before 2003 are $10 each. Orders may be placed by email or by telephone at (601) 576-6998.
