The Columbia Journal of History (formerly the Columbia Undergraduate Journal of History) is a publication of the Undergraduate History Council at Columbia University. We review student submissions from history departments across the United States and abroad, and then select the most exemplary among them to be published in the Journal.

In December, the Columbia Undergraduate History Council votes on a new Editor-in-Chief to lead the following four seasonal publication cycles. The Editor-in-Chief appoints three Managing Editors whose responsibilities consist of overseeing the editorial process of two accepted papers each as well as four Editors. The Managing Editors hold interviews to select twelve Editors from the Columbia Undergraduate community, with preference given to History majors and concentrators. Two Editors are assigned to each accepted paper and are overseen by one Managing Editor.


If you are a Columbia student interested in joining the Journal as an Editor, please return to this page in December of 2018.
