Recent Scholarship Online

We are pleased to announce our recent update of Recent Scholarship Online. The new interface provides more nuanced search options, enables users to easily create and manage multiple bibliographies, and features updated subject categories to reflect changes in the field.

The new online listing is similar both to the print version that used to appear in the print Journal and the previous version of the online listing. Members who prefer a complete list can still view each issue's "Recent Scholarship" section online on the RSO site and print it. The site also provides a permanent archive of each issue's "Recent Scholarship." Beginning with December 2015, the "Recent Scholarship" listing is organized alphabetically by author rather than by category. Each citation includes the multiple subject categories assigned to it (as opposed to just the single primary category in the previous version) so readers can more easily identify articles of interest.

Recent Scholarship Online, a searchable, cumulative database of "Recent Scholarship" entries,
is available to individual members of the Organization of American Historians at
http://rso.oah.org/. The chart below lists the features Recent Scholarship Online.
