About the NHP series

New Historical Perspectives is a book series for early career historians (within 10 years of their doctorate), commissioned and edited by the Royal Historical Society, and published as an imprint of the Institute of Historical Research by the University of London Press. It seeks to publish innovative and high-quality research in accessible online formats.

All titles are published in print (hard- and paperback) and as Open Access (OA) from first publication. Open Access editions appear on the OA platform of the University of London Press, and as part of JSTOR's Open Access Books, enabling full book and chapter downloads. Titles are published Open Access with no fees charged to the author or the author's institution.

Monograph authors also receive a workshop with invited specialists to discuss their work before its final submission, and guidance from members of the NHP's academic editorial board who also oversee a careful peer-review process. 

The first titles in the series will appear in late 2019 and Spring 2020, with further books published regularly from this point.
