Historical Methods reaches an international audience of social scientists concerned with historical problems. It explores interdisciplinary approaches to new data sources, new approaches to older questions and material, and practical discussions of computer and statistical methodology, data collection, and sampling procedures. The journal includes the following features: “Evidence Matters” emphasizes how to find, decipher, and analyze evidence whether or not that evidence is meant to be quantified. “Database Developments” announces major new public databases or large alterations in older ones, discusses innovative ways to organize them, and explains new ways of categorizing information. “Perfecting Data” addresses generic deficiencies in historical data and suggests ways to alleviate them. “Scholarly Incursions” includes bold cross-disciplinary approaches intended to shake up two or more fields of study. Historical Methods has also initiated an annual issue devoted solely to reviewing books of significance to its readership.
