The major purpose of the Social Science History Association (SSHA) is to improve the quality of historical explanation, particularly by encouraging the selective use and adaptation in historical teaching and research of relevant theories and methods from related disciplines, particularly the social sciences. Members of the SSHA share an interest in interdisciplinary and systematic approaches to historical research. The association publishes a quarterly journal, Social Science History, and conducts an annual conference for the presentation of new research.

The official journal of the Social Science History Association
Social Science History seeks to advance the study of the past by publishing research that appeals to the journal's interdisciplinary readership of historians, sociologists, economists, political scientists, anthropologists, and geographers. The journal seeks articles that blend empirical research with theoretical work, undertake comparisons across time and space, or contribute to the development of quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis.
