Ontario History is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal that is published bi-annually by The Ontario Historical Society. Ontario’s premier history journal, it discusses a wide variety of topics relating to the province’s past.
Articles cover a wide range of historical subjects including, but not exclusive to, politics, intellectual history, First Nations, gender history, business, urban themes, agriculture, archaeology, military history, biography, recreation, architecture, religion, and ethnic history.
In 1899, The Ontario Historical Society published the first issue of Ontario History, then titled Papers and Records. What began primarily as an effort to preserve important documentary sources has evolved over the past century to become today’s scholarly peer-reviewed journal, publishing new research and scholarship on topics related to all aspects of Ontario’s diverse heritage.
