If you have ever wondered how a question about the past become a published article in the Oregon Historical Quarterly, this program is for you. The Quarterly’s editorial team will provide an overview of the process we use to work with authors to develop their manuscripts, respond to peer-reviewers’ recommendations, make copy-editing suggestions, conduct fact-checking, choose images and lay out pages, and finalize the issue for publication. We will also review the types of articles published in the journal and the role of the OHQ Editorial Advisory Board. Questions will be encouraged!
