The UBC Journal of Historical Studies is a student-run publication at the University of British Columbia, active since 2004. Formerly known as the Atlas Undergraduate Journal of World History, we strive to produce a yearly journal that showcases the exemplary historical research of undergraduate students. Our mission is to engage students with research and all of its possibilities, and contribute to a thriving academic community at UBC.
We are directly supported by the Department of History, the History Students Association, and the Arts Undergraduate Society.
Our journal undergoes a peer and faculty-review process. Submissions are accepted in the fall/winter and publication occurs in the spring. If you are a UBC student interested in becoming involved with the UBC Journal of Historical Studies, email our Editors-in-Chief at
