Foundations was founded in 2005 by undergraduates at The Johns Hopkins University. The mission was simple: Fill a glaring void in the scope of historical publications by providing a forum for undergraduates undertaking substantive research to publish their findings. Foundations is a truly international journal, receiving submissions from schools both large and small in the United States and throughout the world.
Foundations is published biannually (Fall and Spring) with each new issue appearing primarily online, along with a compendium end-of-the-year print edition. The Editorial Board, which makes all formal publication decisions, is composed entirely of current undergraduates at Johns Hopkins. The Editorial staff is assisted by members of the Faculty Advisory Board, who offer their assessment and critique of all articles to be published.
