WHA Mission Statement
The Western History Association strives to be a congenial home for the study and teaching of all aspects of North American Wests, frontiers, homelands, and borderlands. Our mission is to cultivate the broadest appreciation of this diverse history.
WHQ HAS MOVED!
February 22, 2016
Welcome to the new Western Historical Quarterly! Now that Oxford University Press is our publisher, we have set up a new online submission system through ScholarOne.
Check out the new OUP/WHQ website at:
We are very eager to see your work. As the official journal of the Western History Association, since 1969 we have published original articles dealing with the most capacious North American West—expansion and colonization, indigenous histories, race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, regional studies (including western Canada, northern Mexico, Alaska, and Hawaii), and transnational, comparative, and borderland histories. Political, economic, social, cultural, and intellectual histories of a broadly defined West and studies set in all eras of the past, into the twenty-first century, are encouraged.
Instructions about how to submit article manuscripts, the format and citation style the WHQ prefers, our publication process, and links to recent articles are on the new Oxford University Press/WHQ site at
(You can also find that info here under "Submissions").
We’re looking forward to the advantages of this new system as it makes our publication process faster, but it is new for all of us! You can look at the ScholarOne WHQ site and register if you like at:
If you have any questions or encounter problems with the system , please do not hesitate to contact us.

IMPORTANT EDITORIAL ESSAYS

Do you think Open Access is the answer? Read these two thoughtful essays by the Omohundro Institute's Director Dr. Karin Wulf.
What Does it Take? From Submission to Publication at the WMQ.
