Labour History Review is published in partnership with the Society for the Study of Labour History, alongside the book series Studies in Labour History, edited by Dr Alan Campbell. Since 1960 the journal has explored the working lives and politics of 'ordinary' people and has played a key role in redefining social and political history.

The journal's emphasis is on British labour history, though comparative and international studies are not neglected. The editors welcome contributions which dig deeper within the traditional subject matter of labour history, but they are also keen to expand the parameters of the subject and the range of approaches taken to it. They are particularly interested in articles which engage with issues of gender and ethnicity or race, as well as class.

Labour History Review is indexed and abstracted in:
Arts and Humanities Citation Index
Cabell's Whitelist
