Where to read EH (and its predecessors)

The usual answer is these links: for published articles, best articles, ahead-of-print articles, online multimedia, and subscriptions. But, however those links worked for you, there are more means of access that can help everyone from first-time readers to experienced researchers.

JSTOR

JSTOR's EH archive has some tradeoffs: some free access, but that access is partial and includes nothing from the last 5.x years. Libraries offer JSTOR access to patrons and alumni, but you can also get it directly.

The free individual account (i.e. without the additional paid JPASS subscription) allows on-screen reading (but not download) of six free articles per month from some journals, including Environmental History from 1996 through this-year-minus-six, all of Environmental History Review and Environmental Review— but not Forest & Conservation History, the Journal of Forest History, or Forest History (Newsletter).

Environmental History (1996 through six years ago)

Environmental History Review (1990-1995)

Environmental Review (1976-1990)

Forest & Conservation History (1990-1995)

Journal of Forest History (1974-1989)

Forest History Newsletter / Forest History (1957-1973)

Libraries

Thousands of libraries have EH on-line and/or on-shelf, and thousands more can guide you to libraries that do, or can order you articles by interlibrary loan. Often a library is not only free but has the highest level of online access— though sometimes via a web of databases, so ask a librarian for help. WorldCat is a vast cooperative effort, so take the following searches as just a starting point, or better yet call your library.

Environmental History (1996-present)

Environmental History Review (1990-1995)

Environmental Review (1976-1990)

Forest & Conservation History (1990-1995)

Journal of Forest History (1974-1989)

Forest History (1958-1973)

Forest History Newsletter (1957)

Other databases

The University of Chicago Press maintains a list of abstracting and indexing services that index EH.
