Environmental History is the world’s leading scholarly journal in environmental history and the journal of record in the field. Published four times a year by Oxford University Press on behalf of the American Society for Environmental History and the Forest History Society, the journal brings together scholars and practitioners from the humanities, sciences, and social sciences to explore the changing relationships between humans and the environment over time.

This website offers a range of resources for educators, scholars, students, and the public that are not found in the print journal. The Teaching EH section provides interactive teaching units that model ways to incorporate elements of the journal into the classroom. New Scholarship reflects the constantly changing nature of the field through updated databases of recently published environmental history books and articles as well as information on newly acquired or discovered archival collections relevant to the field. Additional interactive features, such as extended reviews of classic texts that helped shape environmental history, are in the works.
