Greetings. We welcome you to an exciting new venture in academic
publishing. In recent years, the explosion in new publications has
slowed the appearance of book reviews in most journals to one to two
years after a book's release. The growing popularity of the Internet
among scholars now seems to offer a means of making reviews available in
a timely manner. In order to take advantage of this opportunity,
History Reviews On-Line has been created. The editorial goal is to
provide reviews within three to six months of publication. The journal
will be sponsored by the University of Cincinnati and will dedicate
itself exclusively to book reviews. The journal will also try to fill a
number of gaps in the current coverage of publications by offering a
mixture of formats. Collective reviews and forums, as well as reviews
of individual works, will be published. In addition, extended coverage
will be devoted to reviewing anthologies, collections of essays,
textbooks, and other non-monographic forms generally neglected by

The journal will appear quarterly in the Fall, Winter, Spring, and
Summer, with the first number appearing July 1, 1995. We hope you will
continue to watch this site. Those interested in reviewing for HROL or
with questions should contact us through e-mail at
