Historical Studies

 A peer reviewed journal of the CCHA

Historical Studies is an annual peer-reviewed publication of the Canadian Catholic Historical Association. It publishes articles on the history of Catholicism in Canada or on topics that have a connection to the Canadian Catholic experience. Periodically, the journal will also publish historiographical articles that summarize and assess new trends and developments in Catholic history, as well as reviews of new books that significantly affect our understanding of Canadian Catholic history.

The journal has a rigorous peer review system, with authors usually receiving two reviews of their work.

Historical Studies is published together with the French-language Études d’histoire religieuse, the journal for Société canadienne d’histoire de l’Église catholique.

Historical Studies is indexed in the Canadian Periodical Index, the Catholic Periodical and Literature IndexUlrich’s International Periodicals Dictionary, ABC-Clio’s American: History and Life, and the Canadian Historical Review’s “Recent Publications Relating to Canada.

The Paul A. Bator Memorial Award is awarded biennially to the author of the article judged to be the best published by Historical Studies in the previous two years.
