       Women and Social Movements in the United States published its first two online document projects in December 1997, work that grew out of an undergraduate research course taught by Kathryn Kish Sklar at SUNY Binghamton. From that modest beginning the website has expanded steadily. We have published new resources in partnership with Alexander Street Press since March 2004 and now 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 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 or archives. We have prepared a guide for submissions which offers suggestions for developing a document project. If you are interested in reviewing books or websites for the journal, please contact Mary Henold.

       Subscriptions to the website and 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.

        Since 2008 our editorial efforts have also been focused on a companion database and website first posted on the WWW in January 2011: Women and Social Movements, International--1840 to Present. This database, now complete, 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 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 publishing cutting-edge scholarship . As Women and Social Movements in the United States has expanded over seventeen years it has become an increasingly collaborative undertaking. Please feel free to contact us with ideas you may have for the website.
