Journal of the History of Ideas
Since its inception in 1940, the Journal of the History of Ideas has served as a medium for the publication of research in intellectual history that is of common interest to scholars and students in a wide range of fields. It is committed to encouraging diversity in regional coverage, chronological range, and methodological approaches. JHI defines intellectual history expansively and ecumenically, including the histories of philosophy, of literature and the arts, of the natural and social sciences, of religion, and of political thought. It also encourages scholarship at the intersections of cultural and intellectual history — for example, the history of the book and of visual culture.

Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies
The Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies is a home for new interdisciplinary scholarship on the early modern world that roots its inquiries in current theoretical and political debates. JEMCS understands the “early modern” in its broadest possible scope, and welcomes studies on political theology, philosophy, economy (labor, slavery, class), aesthetic currents, and the intellectual and cultural world of the fifteenth to the nineteenth centuries. Since its founding in 2000, JEMCS has served as a venue for theoretical approaches that have, in recent decades, reshaped early modern scholarship: queer and feminist theory, postcolonial theory, histories of race and empire, transnational studies, histories of globalization, and cultural materialism. JEMCS reflects these stimulating possibilities by providing a common venue for scholars in such diverse fields as anthropology, art history, economics, history, literary criticism, political science, and sociology. JEMCS challenges the boundaries that separate traditional scholarly disciplines while bringing those disciplines into dialogue with each other.

Manuscript Studies is a new journal that embraces the full complexity of global manuscript studies in the digital age. It has been conceived with four main goals in mind. First, to bridge the gaps between material and digital manuscript research; second, to break down the walls which often separate print and digital publication and serve as barriers between academics, professionals in the cultural heritage field, and citizen scholars; third, to serve as a forum for scholarship encompassing many pre-modern manuscripts cultures—not just those of Europe; and finally to showcase methods and techniques of analysis in manuscript studies that can be applied across different subject areas.

The Jewish Quarterly Review
Established by Israel Abrahams and Claude Montefiore in 1889, The Jewish Quarterly Review is the oldest English-language journal in the field of Jewish studies. JQR preserves the attention to textual detail so characteristic of the journal’s early years, while encouraging scholarship in a wide range of fields and time periods. In each quarterly issue of JQR the ancient stands alongside the modern, the historical alongside the literary, the textual alongside the contextual.
