History Compass publishes original peer-reviewed survey articles from across the entire discipline. Experienced researchers, teaching faculty, and advanced students will all benefit from the accessible, informative articles that provide overviews of current research.

There will be a prize awarded for each of the 9 sections on History Compass:

What do I win?

Can I choose my own topic?
Those entering can choose their own topic; however, as with Compass articles already published on History Compass, submitted essays should have a strong survey element, putting the chosen topic in context for the non-specialist.
