Legacy, a journal of student research, has been published once a year since 2001. The journal enables students to present their research to a broader audience of historians and interested readers. All articles published in Legacy are rigorously peer-reviewed and usually revised from research papers done in SIUC history courses.

The present faculty advisor for Legacy is Dr. Rachel Stocking, who will be happy to provide more information on how to submit work for publication in the journal. Please contact her at stocking@siu.edu.

Current Issue: Volume 11, Issue 1 (2011)
