Early View Announcement

We are happy to announce that Journal of Historical Sociology is now part of Wiley-Blackwell's Early View service. Articles will now be published on a regular basis online in advance of their appearance in a print issue. These articles are fully peer reviewed, edited and complete - they lack only page numbers and volume/issue details - and are considered fully published from the date they first appear online. This date is shown within the published article online. Because Early View articles are considered fully complete, please bear in mind that changes cannot be made to an article after the online publication date even if it is still yet to appear in print.

The articles are available in full HTML or PDF and can be cited as references by using their Digital Object Identifier (DOI) numbers. For more information on DOIs, please see

The implementation of Early View for Journal of Historical Sociology represents our commitment to get manuscripts available to view to the academic community as quickly as possible, reducing time to publication considerably without sacrificing quality or completeness.
