This collection includes important literary reviews and state historical titles, widening the scope of core disciplines in the arts and humanities.


State historical societies are the key collectors of historical artifacts and documents, and in many cases are publishers of journals that have made core contributions to historical scholarship. State historical journals included in this collection are a unique contribution to American history. Many of the following have been publishing for over 100 years: Massachusetts Historical Review (established 1815), The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography (established 1893), and California History (established 1927). Through collaboration with the History Cooperative, JSTOR strengthens its historical scholarship by adding over ten of the Coop’s journals to this collection. The diverse set of titles include Environmental History, Journal of World History, and Labour History.
