Humanities journals have been laggards in exploration of opportunities that the online environment offers, and such attention as editors have given the matter has focused on distribution. This article describes how history journals in the USA are moving to establish a collective presence for scholarly history online. It suggests that editors should give equal attention to current opportunities to improve journals' operational efficiencies through full exploitation of desktop publishing in production and the reorganization of manuscript management (submissions, peer review, and author-editor interactions) as online processes. It concludes that cooperation in online distribution of journal scholarship could well lead on to cooperative use of online production and management tools.
