Historical Life Course Studies

Historical Life Course Studies is the electronic journal of the European Historical Population Samples Network (EHPS-Net). The journal is the primary publishing outlet for research involved in the conversion of existing European and non-European large historical demographic databases into a common format, the Intermediate Data Structure, and for studies based on these databases. The journal publishes both methodological and substantive research articles.

As of January 2021, Historical Life Course Studies moved to its new home on the Openjournals platform. The new URL of the journal is hlcs.nl. All articles can be found on this new location. In addition, the articles of Volumes 1-9 are still accessible on this portal, ehps-net.eu/journal.
