Federal History 6 (January 2014)

H-Law sent around the call for submissions to the January 2015 issue of Federal History, the journal of the Society for History in the Federal Government.  According to the call, "FH examines all aspects of U.S. government history as well as innovative work done in federal public history. FH is a peer-reviewed academic journal published both in print and online. The journal is indexed by ebscohost, and the editors welcome articles from both federal historians and those in academia.”
