Basic information

História (São Paulo) is one of the oldest academic periodicals published by UNESP, and also one of the oldest history magazines circulating in Brazil. The magazine emerged in 1982, after the merging of two periodicals in the field: Anais de História, published by the Assis School of Philosophy, Science and Language Arts, and Estudos Históricos, published by the Marília School of Philosophy, Science and Language Arts. The former circulated between 1969 and 1977, reaching 9 issues; and the latter, created in 1963, reached 16 issues before it was discontinued in 1977.

Starting in 1990, the magazine began being published by the two graduate history programs at UNESP, located in the cities of Franca and Assis. In 2006, after over a decade of experience, in order to optimize the magazine's work and reach a higher level of quality, the programs chose to terminate two other publications which until then had been maintained separately, namely the periodical Pós-História, belonging to the Graduate History Program in Assis, and Estudos de História, published by the Graduate History Program in Franca. Since 2007, the História (São Paulo) magazine thus became the official periodical of UNESP Graduate History Programs. Also since 2007, the magazine, which for some time had been included in several international indexes, began to circulate exclusively by digital media, which led to a significant expansion and diversification of its audience.

The magazine publishes at least two annual dossiers and is constantly receiving texts for its other sections. The title to be used in bibliographies, footnotes, references and bibliographical citations is História (São Paulo).

Currently, the Journal is rated by Capes as Qualis A1.
