This article is about the academic journal. For the history of indigenous Australians, see History of Indigenous Australians.

Aboriginal History is an annual peer-reviewed academic journal published by Aboriginal History.[1] It was established in 1977 (co-founded and edited by Diane Barwick)[2] and covers interdisciplinary historical studies in the field of the interactions between Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-indigenous peoples.[3] the Journal has been described as "... a flagship of the field of Australian Aboriginal history." [4]

The journal's scope includes the areas of indigenous history and oral histories, languages, biographies, bibliographic guides and archival research.[5] It has also brought previously unpublished manuscripts and research in the fields of Australian archaeology, anthropology, linguistics, demography, sociology, law and geography to the professional and wider public.[1] A focus on cultural, political and economic history is complemented by critiques of current events of relevance to Aboriginal culture and society.[6]
