Harvard Business School and Cambridge University Press announced today that they have formed an important new partnership to publish Harvard Business School’s journal Business History Review from 2011.

The oldest journal in its field, Business History Review began publication in 1926 as the Bulletin of the Business Historical Society and adopted its current name in 1954. Business History Review (BHR) is now a quarterly journal publishing original research by leading business and economic historians and management researchers, and continues to be an authoritative voice for the discipline. The primary purpose of BHR, as stated when it began publication, is to "encourage and aid the study of the evolution of business in all periods and in all countries."

With the move to Cambridge, Business History Review will be hosted on Cambridge’s cutting-edge electronic platform, Cambridge Journals Online (http://journals.cambridge.org) giving the journal full online functionality and many new features to enhance and optimize article usage. BHR will benefit from the availability of an online subscription for the first time and the complete archive in one place.

“In recent years the journal has worked hard to globalize its content, and it is fitting that we now have one of the world’s leading global publishers to disseminate this research worldwide,” said Geoffrey Jones, Isidor Straus Professor of Business History at Harvard Business School and Co-Editor, Business History Review.

“As two major academic organisations, Harvard Business School and Cambridge University Press are natural partners. We are delighted to welcome Business History Review as our first business history title, joining a world-leading economic and financial history journal list,” stated Simon Ross, Global Journals Director. He added: “Entering a partnership with an institution of such high repute is always exciting, combining the strength of Cambridge’s books in this field with Cambridge Journals Online platform, there will be an immediate benefit to the wider academic community from the greater dissemination of leading research in business history."
