Social Science History Association

The Social Science History Association, formed in 1976, brings together scholars from numerous disciplines interested in social history.[1]

Statement of Purpose: To bring together members of various disciplines (including economics, sociology, demography, anthropology, and history) who work with historical materials.[2]

Social Science History is a quarterly, peer-reviewed academic journal. It is the official journal of the Social Science History Association. Its articles bring an analytic, theoretical, and often quantitative approach to historical evidence. The journal's founders intended to "improve the quality of historical explanation" with "theories and methods from the social science disciplines" and to make generalizations across historical cases.[3] The first issue came out in the fall of 1976.[3][4] The journal's articles that are most-accessed and cited through JSTOR are about social and political movements and associated narratives.[5][6]
