The first eighty-nine volumes (1924-2012) of the North Carolina Historical Review are now available online in JSTOR, the world’s largest online digital repository for academic journals. First published in the spring of 1924, the quarterly Review quickly established and maintains through today a reputation for scholarly excellence.
Now in its ninety-first year of publication by the Historical Publications Section of the Office of Archives and History, the North Carolina Historical Review has provided a forum for scholarship on North Carolina’s rich history for generations of students, historians, and the general population. Each issue of the Review contains a table of contents, several articles and essays, a selection of book reviews, and notes of historical interest. Since 1934, the April issue includes a bibliography of North Carolina books published in the previous year. Since 1979, the January issue includes a bibliography of recent theses and dissertations on North Carolina subjects. The October issue contains a cumulative index for all four issues in that volume.
Founded in 1995, JSTOR hosts complete runs of more than 1,900 scholarly journals. Through JSTOR, these journals are available for viewing and research in more than 8,400 libraries in more than 160 countries worldwide. Most public and academic libraries in the United States subscribe to JSTOR services and allow their patrons free access to the JSTOR databases. Individual researchers can subscribe to JSTOR’s “Register & Read” and JPASS programs to access JSTOR content on personal computers.
Approximately 356 issues of the North Carolina Historical Review are archived in JSTOR. One can conduct an online search of the contents of a specific issue, a range of issues, or the full run from 1924 through 2012. Each of the four 2013 issues will be added to the JSTOR database quarterly during 2014.
