Online access to all issues of The Journal of Military History is a new benefit for individual members of the Society for Military History. The EBSCOhost website contains cover-to-cover full text for all volumes from the first published issue to present, with no embargo. EBSCO Publishing will email individual Society members the link to access The Journal of Military History and login and password information. Passwords will change quarterly and are for the sole use of individual Society members. Any queries about acquiring online access should be directed to the Journal of Military History office at [email protected].
For institutions, the full text of the journal is available through either EBSCO America: History and Life with Full Text OR Historical Abstracts with Full Text. Libraries only need to have access to either of these databases to have cover-to-cover full text of the journal (i.e., subscriptions to both are not required). Full text is available from 1937 to present, with no embargo. If a library purchases either of these databases, full text of the journal will be accessible via linking to all EBSCOhost databases that index the journal; these include but are not limited to: Academic Search Complete, Academic Search Premier, Academic Search Elite, America: History and Life, Historical Abstracts, Humanities International Complete, etc., as well as EBSCO Discovery Service.
For those libraries that already subscribe to either index (America: History and Life OR Historical Abstracts), the cost of the upgrade to the full-text version, containing hundreds of full-text journals, is less than the cost to purchase those titles in print. The collections were created by licensing the most used journals in each index, so if the indexes are valued by the library, there is an excellent chance that the full-text versions will be too. EBSCO is offering a free three-month trial for Institutions. Institutions interested in a trial and/or pricing should email [email protected] and provide contact information.
