Aims & Scope
The Purdue Historian is an annual scholarly journal that publishes undergraduate work in the field of History. The journal welcomes all essays, term papers, and senior theses for consideration for publication. The Purdue Historian prefers, but isn't limited to, original research and work that relies heavily on the use of primary source material. Articles published in the journal are exemplary papers that cover important historical events and incorporate original scholarly analysis. The purpose of this publication is to provide a unique and important outlet for undergraduate student research, writing, and professionalism. While our primary goal is to foster undergraduate student research and publication, we also offer students an opportunity to gain professional experience in the publication process. The Purdue Historian is managed exclusively by undergraduate members of the Nu Omega Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta at Purdue University.
