The Oral History Review: Submission

The Oral History Review now uses Scholar One for submission of article manuscripts.  Click here to submit an article manuscript to the Oral History Review.  Note: The procedure for submitting review manuscripts (that is, book reviews and media/non-print reviews) has not changed; those still go to the appropriate editor using their contact information below:

  • Correspondence regarding the development of the journal generally and the development of individual submissions specifically should be directed to David Caruso, Editor in Chief.
  • Correspondence regarding editorial matters related to the management and production of the journal should be sent to: Abigail Perkiss, Managing Editor.
  • Correspondence regarding, and submissions of, solicited and unsolicited book reviews, should be directed to: Nancy MacKay. Books for review may be mailed to  Oral History Review, c/o The Science History Institute, 315 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106.
  • Correspondence regarding submissions focused on digital media and reviews of non-print materials (including films, exhibits, performances, and other multimedia and hypermedia formats) should be directed to: Janneken Smucker, Digital Editor.
  • Correspondence regarding the development of submissions for the annual oral history pedagogy section should be directed to Abigail Perkiss.


Even with Scholar One and its detailed submission instructions, the OHR’s editorial team still wants authors to note the following information

  • Manuscripts should be double-spaced throughout (including footnotes and quotations) and prepared according to the Chicago Manual of Style.
  • The Oral History Review conducts blinded peer-review. When uploading your manuscript you will need to upload a manuscript file with no identifying author information and a separate title page with author details.
  • Manuscripts submitted for publication to other journals should not be sent simultaneously to The Oral History Review, nor should the same or very similar article be published in another journal or periodical if it is to be published in the Oral History Review.
  • And one last reminder: Review manuscripts still should be submitted electronically via email attachment to the appropriate editor (contact information above).
