Submissions Policy – History Trails

While History Trails’ subject matter has traditionally focused almost entirely on local concerns, we are interested in expanding its scope into new areas. For example, where one article might focus on a single historic building, person, or event in the county, others may develop and defend a historic argument, compare and contrast Baltimore County topics to other locales, or tie seemingly confined local topics to larger events.

Articles abiding by the Chicago Manual of Style Documentary-Note (or Humanities) system will be given priority. A convenient, and abbreviated, guide to Chicago style citations may be found in Kate L. Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, 8th edition (University of Chicago Press, 2013).

Digital and hard copies of articles may be submitted to:
