Its primary purpose is to publish articles, documents, notes, and reviews concerning the political, military, social, economic, and cultural history of Ohio and the Middle West. The editors welcome studies in general fields of American history if they possess obvious relevance to Ohio and the Middle West.

Authors are asked to submit their manuscripts as e-mail attachments (in a commonly used format, such as Microsoft Word) to ohiohistory@ohiohistory.org. Articles should be double-spaced, and footnotes should be double-spaced and placed at the end of the article. If you prefer to send your article via U.S. Mail, please include two copies and address your envelope to the Editor, Ohio History, Ohio Historical Center, 1982 Velma Avenue, Columbus, Ohio 43211-2497. The society accepts no responsibility for facts and opinions expressed by the authors.

Articles appearing in this journal are abstracted and indexed in Historical Abstracts, America: History and Life, Abstracts of Popular Culture, Recently Published Articles, and The Journal of American History. Back issues, reprints, and microfilm editions are available through the Ohio Historical Society and University Microfilms.
