Liverpool University Press is delighted to announce it will be publishing Transactions of the Historic Society of Lancashire and Cheshire on behalf of the Historic Society of Lancashire and Cheshire from 2019.

Transactions of the Historic Society of Lancashire and Cheshire was first published in 1849. Over 160 editions of the journal have been published. This represents a considerable and influential body of scholarly material on the history of the two counties.

Transactions is a high quality, peer-reviewed annual journal which includes articles and short notes reflecting recent and original research on diverse aspects of the history of Lancashire and Cheshire. Content is not limited by theme or chronological coverage. The articles cover a range of topics and periods, and are of wide-ranging scholarly and popular interest. Reviews of recent volumes of Transactions have endorsed the Society’s reputation as a supporter and publisher of scholarly research, a reputation which the Society’s Council aims to enhance.

The first issue under the new publishing agreement will be published in September 2019, and for the first time, will be fully available online. Online access to the last 10 years of the journal will also be available to all subscribers and members of the Society.
