The Journal of American History (sometimes abbreviated as JAH), is the official journal of the Organization of American Historians. It was first published in 1914 as the Mississippi Valley Historical Review, the official journal of the Mississippi Valley Historical Association. After the publication of its fiftieth volume, the recognition of a shift in the direction of the membership and its scholarship led to the name change.

The JAH is headquartered in Bloomington, Indiana and is published quarterly, in March, June, September, and December, printed by Capital City Press of Montpelier, Vermont. The Editor is Edward Linenthal.
