Welcome to the Society for Military History

Established in 1933 as the American Military History Foundation, renamed in 1939 the American Military Institute, and renamed again in 1990 the Society for Military History, the Society is devoted to stimulating and advancing the study of military history. Its membership (today more than 2700) has included many of the world's most prominent scholars, soldiers, and citizens interested in military history.

Now Live: JMH Tracker

The Journal of Military History has launched its new online manuscript submission system, JMH Tracker. The direct link to JMH Tracker appears on the Submission Guidelines page: http://www.smh-hq.org/jmh/submissions.html. Authors who wish to submit manuscripts to be considered for publication by the JMH can now set up individual accounts and submit their manuscripts via this link. The JMH editorial staff will receive an automatic notification whenever a manuscript has been uploaded, and authors will be able to log onto their accounts to track the progress and status of their submissions.

Any time your status changes it will be because an editor contacts you about your submission.  The different statuses are:

  •  In Process
  •  Received
  •  Under Peer Review
  •  Declined
  •  Under Revision
  •  Accepted
  •  Published
  •  Withdrawn by author
JMH Tracker is hosted by Event Rebels, the company that has been providing our membership system since 2012.
