Journal of Slavery and Data Preservation 

The Journal of Slavery and Data Preservation is a digital academic journal that publishes datasets and accompanying data articles about the lives of enslaved Africans and their descendants from the fifteenth to the early twentieth centuries. The Journal of Slavery and Data Preservation builds from and expands upon the pioneering digital scholarship on the transatlantic slave trade. As such, the journal elevates curated data to a first-class publication status, providing scholarly review, recognition, and credit to those who undertake the intellectual work involved in generating, cleaning, contextualizing, and describing digital records relating to bondage and freedom in Africa and the diaspora.

MSJoH is one of the only undergraduate-managed history journals in the country. Majors elect an editorial board and solicit papers from students in upper-level history courses. The board reviews the papers, makes decisions about what will be published, and gives feedback to the authors. For six years, the journal was released in a print. This year, the board opted for an online volume, so that readership would be broader. With help of  H-Net, the board also digitized all previous issues, which can be seen on our website.
