The University of Colorado Boulder is home to Diplomatic History, the journal of record for Historians of American Foreign Relations.

The History Department at the University of Colorado Boulder welcomes graduate applications to its vibrant program in American Foreign Relations, of which the journal is an integral part. For information on studying United States Foreign Relations in the graduate program, please visit the History Department's website.

Diplomatic History is the only journal devoted to U.S. international history and foreign relations, broadly defined, including grand strategy, diplomacy, and issues involving gender, culture, ethnicity, and ideology. It examines U.S. relations in a global and comparative context, and its broad focus appeals to a number of disciplines, including political science, international economics, American history, national security studies, and Latin American, Asian, African, and European studies.

***Editor's announcement regarding transition to ScholarOne Manuscripts***: It is with pleasure that I announce Diplomatic History's transition to a new manuscript submission system, ScholarOne Manuscripts, on Monday, October 22nd. For months the editorial staff and I have been working on transitioning publishers, from Wiley Blackwell to Oxford University Press. Part of this transition entails the complete overhaul of our manuscript submission process. Up to now, Diplomatic History has accepted manuscripts, reviews, book reviews, special forums, and presidential addresses via email or by hardcopy. ScholarOne is a completely virtual system. All authors and reviewers will submit their work online, regardless of their submission type, through ScholarOne. This new venue will streamline the submission and review process for authors and reviewers. Please know that our staff and I will do all we can to make this transition to ScholarOne seamless, by providing guidance and trouble-shooting tips. Here are the full instructions to authors on how to submit a paper. Instructions for reviewers will be in the given during the invitation process.Technical help will be available to all users of ScholarOne.

Thank you,

Thomas W. Zeiler

Manuscript submission guidelines can be found here. As of November 15th, Diplomatic History no longer accepts either hardcopy submissions or electronic submissions of manuscripts to diplomat@colorado.edu. All authors and reviewers should submit their work to ScholarOne. All authors who are resubmitting manuscripts initially reviewed by Diplomatic History before November 15th will need to submit their revised manuscripts via Scholar One.

Thomas W. Zeiler, professor of American Foreign Relations at the University of Colorado Boulder, is the Editor. From 2001 to 2011 Professor Robert D. Schulzinger was the journal's editor-in-chief
