For over eighty years, the Pacific Historical Review has accurately and adeptly covered the rich history of the Pacific Rim, including U.S. expansion to the Pacific and beyond, cross-cultural and comparative studies, race and ethnicity, history of empire and imperialism, environmental history, and historiography. The journal seeks to foster dialogue between scholars of disparate—yet intricately related—fields of history by offering a common medium of publication.

In addition, we are open to working with scholars of any field involving the history of the Pacific Rim, and we encourage inquiries or submissions from all who believe that the Pacific Historical Review would be a proper venue for their scholarship.

Every issue of the Pacific Historical Review features an extensive section devoted to book reviews plus frequent review essays. The Pacific Historical Review also includes notes and documents, historiographies, and forums on a broad range of topics.

Pacific Historical Review is indexed and abstracted in the following services:
