Upcoming Event

Seventy-five years ago, a group of British officers and scientists led by Prime Minister Winston Churchill's Science Advisor Sir Henry Tizard secretly traveled to the United States and Canada during the darkest days of World War II to begin what would become an unparalleled collaboration in science and technology and strategic deterrence.

A conference devoted to the Tizard Mission will be held in Washington, DC at the Embassy of Canada on November 17th. For more information, including registration information, please see the Announcements and Events page.

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.

JMH Tracker is hosted by Event Rebels, the company that has been hosting our membership system since 2012.
