First published in the spring of 1924, the quarterly Review quickly established and maintains through today a reputation for scholarly excellence.

Now in its ninetieth year of publication by the Historical Publications Section of the Office of Archives and History, the North Carolina Historical Review has provided a forum for scholarship on North Carolina’s rich history for generations of students, historians, and the general population. Each issue of the Review contains a table of contents, several articles and essays, a selection of book reviews, and notes of historical interest. Since 1934, the April issue includes a bibliography of North Carolina books published in the previous year. The October issue contains a cumulative index for all four issues in that volume. Access to these new digital volumes is free and the full text of each of the 176 issues is searchable.
