After a 3-year publishing hiatus, New Jersey History (NJH), the state’s venerable, peer-reviewed journal, is back – relaunched as an open access e-journal.
New Jersey History: Studies in State and Regional History was founded as the Proceedings of the New Jersey Historical Society in 1845 and published under the direction of the Society until 2005. The new NJH provides immediate and open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
NJH is supported by the New Jersey Digital Highway, which will provide an additional access point for the journal from its website, and will preserve the digital version of the journal articles via the RUcore preservation platform. NJH will be published online twice a year by the Rutgers University Libraries, using its customized version of Open Journal System (OJS), a journal management and publishing system that supports open access scholarly journal development.
