Routledge, Taylor & Francis announces new publishing partnership with the Oral History Association

Routledge, Taylor & Francis is proud to be forming a new publishing partnership with the Oral History Association (OHA). From January 2020, Routledge will be publishing OHA’s eminent peer-reviewed journal The Oral History Review, a publication dedicated to the theory and practice of oral history and related fields.

The Oral History Review’s primary mission is to explore the nature and significance of oral history and advance understanding of the field among scholars, educators, practitioners, and the public. Work published in the journal arises from many fields, disciplines and geographies, reflecting the interdisciplinary and international nature of oral history. The Review publishes narrative and analytical articles and reviews, in print and multimedia formats, that present and use oral history in unique and significant ways and that contribute to the understanding of the nature of oral history and memory. It seeks previously unpublished works that demonstrate high-quality research and that offer new insight into oral history practice, methodology, theory, and pedagogy.

Helen Preskett, Global Head of Portfolio for Routledge history journals, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with the OHA to publish The Oral History Review, welcoming the journal into our dynamic history journals list alongside our well-established oral history books program. Working closely with this growing and innovative Association, we will build on the current success of the OHR and extend its digital engagement with both existing and new audiences. We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”

Kristine M. McCusker and Louis M. Kyriakoudes, Co-Executive Directors at OHA, added: “The Oral History Association is delighted to launch this new partnership between Routledge and our flagship journal, The Oral History Review. Routledge’s global presence and commitment to incorporating digital media into scholarly communication will allow The Oral History Review to engage a worldwide community of oral history scholars and practitioners. By the same token, Routledge will add the leading oral history journal to its catalog of outstanding humanities journals.”
