ARCHIVE is currently accepting submissions for the 26th volume, to be published in May 2023. Please email submissions, following the guidelines on the ARCHIVE website, to by January 31, 2023 at 11:59pm.

ARCHIVE is an award-winning journal of history published annually by undergraduate History majors, in partnership with the History Department and the UW-Madison chapter of Phi Alpha Theta.  Each spring semester, the editorial board enrolls in History 601: Historical Publishing Practicum, which is taught by the journal’s faculty advisor, and publishes that year’s volume at the end of the semester.

ARCHIVE accepts submissions from undergraduate students of all majors and from colleges and universities in the US or abroad.  The deadline for submissions is usually in late January or early February.  Check out ARCHIVE’s website to view past volumes and find out how you could be published.  If you would like to join the ARCHIVE editorial board, please write to or contact the History Department’s undergraduate advisor, Scott Burkhardt.
