1. Who may submit papers to The Concord Review?

You may submit a history research paper to The Concord Review if you completed the paper before finishing secondary school and you have not yet enrolled in a college or university. You must be the sole author. The paper must be in English and may not have been previously published except in a publication of a secondary school that you attended.

2. Must papers submitted to The Concord Review be about United States History?

We welcome papers on any historical topic (ancient or modern, domestic or foreign. See our issues index or our online sample essays for examples of the types of essays that have been written in the past.

3. May I use MLA style endnotes for my paper?


Papers submitted to The Concord Review should use Turabian (University of Chicago) style endnotes, NOT MLA style. Information about Turabian endnotes can be found in A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses and Dissertations by Kate L. Turabian, or at this page on the website of the Memorial University of Newfoundland.   

4. May I submit my paper by email?


Yes, in fact we require an electronic copy of your paper.  Once you have completed the Submission application you will have access to where to send your paper electronically.  All papers require completion of the submission form and payment of the submission fee.  No papers will be considered outside of this submission procedure.  Once you have completed your paid application, logon to the website and go to the Concord Review > Members > Authors page for instructions.  For more details on requirements and format, see our Submission page.

5. May I submit more than one paper?

Absolutely! Our mission here at The Concord Review is to encourage secondary students to push themselves academically. We love to hear about students who write more papers than expected. On several occasions we have published more than one paper by an author.

Click this link to send us a request by email.  We'll adjust  your account and you can fill out the new essay data in your profile.  Each essay must be accompanied by a $70 submission fee. We can bill your existing account for the new submission.

6. May I submit a paper that is less than 4,000 words?

You are certainly welcome to submit a paper that is less than 4,000 words in length. However, we would like to caution you that your paper will be competing with longer papers submitted.

7. May I submit a paper on a topic that The Review has already published?

We welcome papers on topics that we've already published. Every historian can add more insight to what has been published before.   

8. May I submit papers completed during an independent study?

Of course you may! We have published a number of great papers from students pursuing the study of history on their own, with guidance from someone else.   

9. May I submit the same paper to The Concord Review and the National Writing Board?


Yes. We would like you to note that the submission and evaluation processes for The Concord Review and for the National Writing Board are completely separate. It is necessary to complete the submissions process for each separately. Please see the submissions guidelines for The Concord Review and the submissions guidelines for the National Writing Board.  

10.  What is the deadline for submitting my paper?

Papers may be submitted at any time during the year, and they are eligible for at leastthe next four issues. Each issue takes about three months to prepare. There is no specific deadline for submission. For example, an essay submitted in September might be published in the Spring or Summer issue, and so on.

11. When do I have to submit my paper to be considered for the next issue?

For the Winter issue your paper should be in by late August. For the Spring issue by late November. For the Summer issue by late February, and for the Fall issue by late May. Papers submitted are eligible for at least the next four issues.


12. Will I hear if my paper is not used in the next issue?


We publish about 5% of the essays we receive. If the your paper will not be in the next issue, you will not hear anything, but your paper is still eligible for future issues. If your paper is to be published, you will receive a letter the month before the issue comes out.

13. I'm a teacher submitting a group of essays and paying with one check (or credit card) from the school.  What do I do?

1. Teacher mails check and list
Send a check  with a list of names and the email addresses the students will use when they apply.

2. Students apply and click "Invoice me"
Have each student individually fill out the online application using their own email address (the one on the list in the last step).  They should  click the "Invoice me" button at the end of the process.  This completes their application. The system will email each submitter with their user name and password as soon as their application is done.  Students will submit the essay file later, after payment is received.

3. Accounts are activated on payment and students submit essays
Once we receive the check and list, we “activate” the memberships.  The authors will get an email with instructions on submitting the essay files. Essays should follow the formatting and naming requirements on this page and the Submit page.

14. Ilive in Singapore and am having trouble paying with Paypal.

Sadly, PayPal has a policy which limits our ability to receive electronic payments from Singapore. Check payment is the only option for persons in Singapore. We regret the inconvenience.

15. Can I pay by check?

Yes.  Complete the application at the membership page and check the box "I want to pay by check".  When you have completed the application, go to "My Profile" by clicking your name at the top of the page.  Then click the "Invoices and payments" tab.  Print your invoiceand send it with your check to
