Published since 1941, JSAH is widely recognized as a leading English-language journal on history of the built environment. Published four times per year, each issue offers four to five scholarly articles on topics from all periods of history and all parts of the world, reviews of recent books, exhibitions, films, and other media, and a variety of editorials and opinion pieces designed to place the discipline of architectural history within a larger intellectual context.

Published both in print and online, JSAH represents the next generation of scholarly communication, utilizing a wide variety of enriched multimedia content including zoomable images, panoramic photography, three-dimensional models, video and audio clips, and integration with GIS (geographic information system), to bring topics to life for those interested in the history of architecture, landscape architecture, and urbanism. Subscriptions to JSAH are a benefit of SAH membership.
