The Oregon Historical Quarterly, a peer-reviewed, public history journal, has been published continuously since 1900 by the Oregon Historical Society, an independent, nonprofit organization. OHQ brings well-researched, well-written history about Oregon and the Pacific Northwest to both scholars and a general audience. With a circulation of around 4,500, OHQ is one of the largest state historical society journals in the United States and is a recognized and respected source for the history of the Pacific Northwest region. Each issue contains illustrated research articles and book reviews. Other regular features include primary documents, photo essays, interpretive essays, reminiscences, and reviews of research collections. OHQ occasionally publishes special issues on a single theme, such as the Fall 2004 issue on the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the Fall 2005 issue on the Stevens-Palmer Treaties, and the Winter 2007 issue on Celilo Falls.
The Oregon Historical Society (OHS), founded in 1898, is a private not-for-profit organization that serves as Oregon's steward of history, gathering and preserving documents, manuscripts, publications, films, recordings, and artifacts and making them available to researchers. The Oregon Historical Society also creates and displays exhibits and provides services to educators, students, and scholars through its website, collections, and publications. A 29-member Board governs OHS, whose mission is preserving and interpreting Oregon's past in thoughtful, illuminating, and provocative ways.
