Historical Studies in Industrial Relations was established in 1996 by the Centre for Industrial Relations, Keele University, to provide an outlet for, and to stimulate an interest in, historical work in the field of industrial relations and the history of industrial relations thought. 

The journal's content broadly covers the employment relationship and economic, social and political factors surrounding it – such as labour markets, union and employer policies and organisation, the law, and gender and ethnicity. Articles with an explicit political dimension, particularly recognising divisions within the working class and within workers’ organisations, will be encouraged, as will historical work on labour law. 

Contributions on countries other than Britain, particularly those with a comparative focus, are welcome, as is work on the nineteenth century and even earlier. 

Historical Studies in Industrial Relations is indexed and abstracted in Scopus.
