History Matters is a web-based, undergraduate journal of historical research published annually by the department of history at Appalachian State University. The journal is edited by undergraduates with the help of a faculty board.
History Matters aims to publish the best undergraduate historical research possible, thus working with numerous, skilled undergraduates from a variety of schools. These students become familiar with the publishing process and receive recognition for their work. History Matters is especially seeking research papers that utilize primary sources and welcome those interested in scholarly work to contact the journal.
All issues are now online here. The staff is excited about the new installment of the journal, and we would like to thank all of the undergraduate authors who have participated in the journal!
