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).

Objective and Policy
História (São Paulo)covers a wide range of focal topics, themes, spatial and temporal reference points in the field of History. In order to ensure the diversity of approaches, at least twice a year the magazine issues a themed report, flowing directly into articles on freely chosen subjects, interviews, critical comments from sources and documents and reviews. Its audience mostly consists of university students in the History and General Humanities areas.
Received original articles must first meet the criteria laid out in the Form and Preparation of Manuscripts section below. Once these criteria are met, the originals are evaluated by ad hoc reviewers and analyzed by the Advisory Boards, obeying the double-blind peer review system.
Submission of an article is taken to imply that it is original and it has not previously been published and is not being considered for publication elsewhere.
Each author/co-author can only have one article being processed, from the beginning of the submission to the final publication. Besides, an interval of two years will be observed between the publication and the beginning of a new process of text submission.
The journal doesn't charge any fee to publish texts submitted to it by contributors.
Form and preparation of manuscripts
The magazine publishes original works, by authors who have at least a doctor's degree, as articles, documents preceded by a critical introduction, critical reviews and interviews - exceptionally, in its section of summaries, the magazine accepts to evaluate contributions from authors who are in process of obtaining their doctor's degree. The works may be in Portuguese, English, Spanish, and Italian; those written in a foreign language must bring title, abstract, and keywords in Portuguese and English - respecting the same determinations as for those in Portuguese. Students / fellows who collaborate in the research on sources will not be considered co-authors, and they should be mentioned in a footnote, identifying the sponsoring agency and process number.
Avoid any type of identification of the author in the writings, including any notes.
The articles must have 15 to 30 pages, typed with 2.0 cm margins, Times New Roman 12 font, and a 1.5 line spacing (in general). Short direct quotes (up to 3 lines) must be placed in the body of the text, between only quotation marks (no italics). Long direct quotes (over three lines) must be indented in 4.0 cm, 11 font size, simple line spacing. For direct and indirect quotes, we use the author-date system. Example: (SILVA, 2004, p. 12). Notes placed after Bibliographic References must be explanatory only and reduced to only the information that is ESSENTIAL for the understanding of the text. The bibliographic references must contain ONLY the texts cited in the article, according to the following examples:
