Taylor & Francis Group acquires three Elsevier history journals

August 2011, Abingdon

Taylor & Francis Group, a division of Informa UK Ltd, and 
Elsevier, a world-leading publisher of scientific, technical and 
medical information products and services, announced today their 
decision to transfer three leading history journals - Journal of 
Medieval History, History of European Ideas and The History of 
the Family: An International Quarterly - to Taylor & Francis. 
These three journals will be published under the Routledge 
imprint from January 2012.

Routledge has a significant and well-established presence in the 
field, making it the ideal home for these titles.  The current 
Routledge history programme includes a number of leading 
journals, including Social History, Journal of Imperial and 
Commonwealth History, Labor History, The International History 
Review and Women's History Review.



About the journals

The Journal of Medieval History, published quarterly, aims at 
meeting the need for a major international publication devoted to 
all aspects of the history of Europe in the Middle Ages. Each 
issue comprises around four or five articles on European history, 
including Britain and Ireland, between the fall of Rome and the 
Renaissance. The Journal also includes review articles, 
historiographical essays and 'state of research' studies.

The History of European Ideas is a quarterly journal devoted to 
the intellectual history of Europe from the Renaissance onwards. 
It is interdisciplinary in that it aims to publish papers on the 
history of ideas in a number of different fields: political and 
economic thought, philosophy, natural philosophy and science, 
theology and literature.

The History of the Family: An International Quarterly makes a 
significant contribution by publishing works reflecting new 
developments in scholarship and by charting new directions in the 
historical study of the family. While firmly rooted in history, 
the Journal is interdisciplinary; it publishes articles on 
historical anthropology, historical sociology, economic history 
and psychology as they relate to the family and the life course. 
The History of the Family, published quarterly, was recently 
accepted by Thomson Reuters into the Journal Citation Reports and 
received a 2010 impact factor of 0.595, ranking it 8 out of 26 
journals in the History of the Social Sciences category and 29 
out of 39 in the Family Studies category.

Each of these journals is internationally recognized, peer 
reviewed and supported by an international editorial board.
