About This Journal
In March 2015, the Midwestern History Association launched Studies in Midwestern History to create a space for commentary about the field of Midwestern history. Jon K. Lauck served as General Editor, with Paul Putz and Michael Skaggs serving as Managing Editors.
In June 2017, Scott St. Louis was appointed to manage the journal’s transition to a new online publishing platform, hosted by Grand Valley State University Libraries. Through 2017 and 2018, he began recruiting a larger editorial board for the journal; this board recruitment phase remains ongoing. The new journal website launched in summer 2018, and the journal backlogs were updated to include abstracts for each article.
