The Review Department of WikiProject History aims to review and assess history-related articles through processes that draw editors from a variety of history-related WikiProjects. Current participants include members of the following WikiProjects:
The History Review Department has one review manager, though the seat is currently vacant. The review coordinator appoints two delegates to assist him or her in closing reviews. The delegates' seats are also vacant, pending appointments. Any member of a history-related WikiProject is allowed to review articles, and it is strongly encouraged for members to review articles out of their normal subject area.
The department is also responsible for nominating certain history-related articles for the elevated status of Good and Featured Articles.
