This chapter discusses the earliest major journals that established the format for most of the succeeding historical serial literature and also explores the remainder of the journals by geographical and topical area. Janet Fyfe's History Journals and Serials: An Analytical Guide is quite useful, but she was not selective nor did she include foreign language journals. Of the two, the oldest is Slavonic and East European Review which started soon after the Russian Revolution. The British counterpart, the Society for Renaissance Studies, was founded in 1967, but not until 1987 did it start renaissance studies. Agricultural history: The Quarterly Journal of the Agricultural History Society is the official publication of the Society, which was founded in 1919. Two years later the British produced their version with teaching history. For the past 150 years, the journal has served admirably as an effective medium for dispensing historical writings to scholars providing a sturdy methodological foundation for larger historical works.
