Women and Social Movements in the United States published its first two online document projects in December 1997, work that grew out of courses taught by Kathryn Kish Sklar at SUNY Binghamton. From that modest beginning the website has expanded steadily. We have published new resources quarterly since March 2004 and now we will continue to publish document projects and archives, book and website reviews, and teaching tools twice a year. We have established an editorial board of respected scholars in U.S. Women's History who will play a major role in the peer review of prospective document projects.

We invite prospective contributors to the journal to contact us by email to discuss possible document projects. We have prepared a guide for submissions which offers suggestions for developing a document project. If you would be interested in reviewing books for the journal, and for website reviews, contact . For the teaching tools section of the journal, please contact the editor, Laura Westhoff , Univ. of Missouri, St. Louis

Subscriptions to the website and its journal are available for school, academic and public libraries from Alexander Street Press. Rates on a sliding scale reflect the size and budget of the library. Thirty-day free trial subscriptions are available to permit librarians and users to review the website.

This year our editorial efforts have been particularly focused on the companion database and website first posted on the WWW in January 2011: Women and Social Movements, International--1840 to Present . This database contains 150,000 pages of published and manuscript primary materials and 27 scholarly essays exploring women's international activism since the middle of the nineteenth century. Like WASM, this new resource is available for library subscription or purchase. For access to the database to look it over or to arrange a library free trial, contact Eileen Lawrence at Alexander Street Press.

We look forward to working with historians of U.S. women in the months ahead. As Women and Social Movements in the United States has expanded in the past fourteen years it has become an increasingly collaborative undertaking. Please feel free to contact us at Binghamton University with ideas you may have for the website.
