Oregon Historical Quarterly
The Oregon Historical Quarterly, a peer-reviewed, public history journal, has been published continuously since 1900 by the Oregon Historical Society, an independent, nonprofit organization. OHQ brings well-researched, well-written history about Oregon and the Pacific Northwest to both scholars and a general audience. With a circulation of around 4,500, OHQ is one of the largest state historical society journals in the United States and is a recognized and respected source for the history of the Pacific Northwest region.

Each issue contains illustrated research articles and book reviews. Other regular features include primary documents, photo essays, interpretive essays, reminiscences, and reviews of research collections. OHQ occasionally publishes special issues on a single theme, such as the Fall 2004 issue on the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the Fall 2005 issue on the Stevens-Palmer Treaties, and the Winter 2007 issue on Celilo Falls. OHQ is a proud member of the History Cooperative, which offers OHQ and many other scholarly journals online at
