If you have questions about submitting essays to The Concord Review, feel free to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will respond. We need the best history papers we can find, and we welcome a chance to consider your best work.
Each author who submits a paper and submission fee, receives the next four issues of the journal in eBook form. For an additional $30 plus shipping costs, authors may receive the Print Edition of the journal. Authors may purchase copies of the issue in which his or her essay is published in our bookstore. Individual reprints of their published essay (TCR Singles) can be created with a minimum order of 12 copies. Many authors have included their reprints with their college application materials. The Concord Review is the first and only journal in the world which publishes the academic work of secondary students, so our reprints usually make a distinctive contribution to an author's college application materials.
The best way to judge the quality of the history essays we have published is to read several of the issues of the journal. We have published essays of fewer than 4,000 words, but we also receive and have published essays of 21,000 words. The average is about 5,500 words, with Turabian (Chicago) endnotes and bibliography. We advise that the author should prepare with considerable reading on the topic and that the essay go through at least one draft before it is polished and proofread for submission. We have not yet received essays from history students at all of the perhaps 40,000 eligible secondary schools around the world, but there is already a high level of international competition, and we have published essays from 35 countries so far.
