About This Collection
The New Zealand Journal of History is New Zealand's premier journal for academic writing on New Zealand history and includes contributions from New Zealand's most famous historians.
It has been published by the Department of History at the University of Auckland since 1967.
This online version of the New Zealand Journal of History was developed by staff from Digital Services at The University of Auckland Library.
Most articles in the online New Zealand Journal of History are freely available on the Web. A small number, fewer than 20, are restricted. This is because they contribute significant revenue towards publication costs for the journal under the CLL copyright licensing agreement. The most recent two years are also embargoed for the same reason.
This collection will be of particular interest to historians in New Zealand and around the world, academics and students in related disciplines and New Zealanders generally.
This website can be found on the internet by searching for New Zealand Journal of History.
