Journal of American Ethnic History

The Journal of American Ethnic History, the official journal of the Immigration and Ethnic History Society, is published quarterly and focuses on the immigrant and ethnic/racial history of the North American people.

The Journal of American Ethnic History (JAEH) addresses various aspects of North American immigration history and American ethnic history, including background of emigration, ethnic and racial groups, Native Americans, race and ethnic relations, immigration policies, and the processes of incorporation, integration, and acculturation.

Each issue contains articles, review essays, and single book reviews. The journal also features occasional scholarly forums, “Research Comments” (short essays that furnish important information for the field, a guide to further research, or other significant historical items that will stimulate discussion and inquiry), and “Teaching and Outreach” essays which focus on innovative teaching methods or outreach efforts. The journal also publishes special issues grouping articles and essays on specific topics or themes.

Our publisher, the University of Illinois Press, has contracted with the Scholarly Publishing Collective to host the most recent issues. Older issues on a three-year moving wall will still be available on JSTOR. Members can go to here to access all issues of JAEH.
