Publications

The Royal Historical Society has a long and proud tradition of publishing across a wide range of subjects and formats.

Transactions of the Royal Historical Society, our annual flagship volume, publishes RHS papers by senior and early career historians alike, covering all periods and a wide range of subject areas.

Our New Historical Perspectives (NHP) series, launched in 2016, is our new Open Access book series for Early Career Researchers, a partnership between the RHS and the Institute of Historical Research. Each New Historical Perspectives title will feature on JSTOR’s OA books platform, increasing discoverability and the option to access and share a book at the chapter level.

The Camden Series of editions of primary sources is an invaluable research tool, with over 325 volumes available in print and to subscribers on-line. If you would like to propose a volume, please find more information here.

We have published important reports on Gender Equality in UK History (2015 and 2018) and Race, Ethnicity and Equality in UK History (2018).

With a fully searchable database of over 565,000 records, the Bibliography of British and Irish History is the most complete online bibliography for British and Irish history.

The RHS Library of more than a thousand works of historical scholarship is open to our membership and members of the public by appointment. We are also responsible for important guides to national and regional record societies and their publications.
