Does anyone know of history journals or magazines in California?

I need to get some publications under my belt over the next year. Nothing that's too difficult to get published in either, just so I can pump up my curriculum vitae.

I'm not sure what is out there in smaller towns, big cities, or at the county level.

Thank you.

Most counties, such as ours,have a Historical Society that publishes a journal.
You would have to have a pretty deep background in the local area and they don't pay much if anything. You may need to expand your area of interest. Years ago when I was doing freelance writing there were some boards on AOL where editors would post their needs. You might check them out.

Peer reviewed or non-peer reviewed OK? What about any particular topics?

Here are a couple you might not know about:

Hindsight Graduate History Journal published by the Dept of History at CSUFresno.

If you can be a bit more specific about what you're looking for you might get some more targeted responses. I'm assuming you mean California history-specific publications, as opposed to just California-based publications. Do you want to pump up your CV for academic or for writing clip purposes? Do you have a particular area of interest or expertise? Magazines like the Quarterly (Pasadena area) publish short articles for a general audiences; there are other magazines like that around the state, and although not really a CV booster from the academic sense, they'd give you some nice clips.
