A Message from the Director
Dr. Catherine Magee

I am excited to inform you about the upcoming changes we are making to the Nevada Historical Society Quarterly. In 2023, we are changing the publication’s name to the Nevada Historical Society Q (aka the “Q”) and moving to an online publication with an end of year “best of” print publication mailed out in December.

We are extremely excited about partnering with Project MUSE to host the Nevada Historical Society Q where you will get online access with your paid subscription to the Q. You will have immediate access to content uploaded as soon it is vetted and approved. Not only will you find expanded articles and color graphics—all the online content is compliant with US and international accessibility standards!

Our mission is our passion—to preserve, share, and protect Nevada’s cultural heritage for the enrichment of all generations, and the Nevada Historical Society’s publications are one way we ensure we fulfill our mission.

Why the ‘Q’ is moving online:

The changes will make the Q broadly accessible, fiscally responsible, and enable expanded content.  Academics will relish having their Q articles globally discoverable.

We are changing to meet the needs of readers, historians, and scholars with both online and print access. The Nevada Historical Society Quarterly began in 1957 and has since become a respected peer-reviewed journal dedicated to Nevada’s history. Our readers rely on us to ensure our articles are factual, educational, and enthralling. This is done through the peer-review process and editing. The submitted articles are sent to experts in the field to review for accuracy, validity, and originality. The editorial process ensures readability and accuracy. Both these processes take time, no longer will scholars and authors have to wait months or even a year for a print publication—content and articles will be published on the Nevada Historical Society Q page of the Project MUSE website as soon as they have been reviewed and approved.
