Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians



The leading journal on the built environment

The Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians is a blind peer-reviewed international journal devoted to all aspects of the history of the built environment and spatial practice, including architecture, landscape architecture, urbanism, and city planning. Published since 1941, JSAH has defined the field of architectural history and is a pioneer in digital publication. We seek articles that are historically rigorous, conceptually sophisticated, and theoretically innovative. Our scope is global.

JSAH simultaneously publishes two editions, on paper and online. As the leading English-language journal on the built environment, each issue of JSAH offers four to five scholarly articles on national and international topics, reviews of recently-published books, multimedia productions and architecture exhibitions, field-notes, and editorials that place the discipline of architectural history within a larger intellectual inter-disciplinary context. Subscriptions to JSAH are a benefit of membership in the Society of Architectural Historians. Access to JSAH and JSAH Online places you at the cutting edge of discourse on the built environment.
