The Maryland Historical Society publishes a biannual journal and selected books. MdHS publications bring into print the freshest and brightest new research on Maryland’s past. Historians at all stages of their careers are encouraged to submit their work for consideration. The society’s editor, with the MdHS Publications Committee, a voluntary advisory board, selects materials for publications.

The highly acclaimed Maryland Historical Magazine, published since 1906, is a peer-reviewed journal with one of the largest readerships among state historical society journals.

The society publishes books that bring forth rich episodes of Maryland’s history in a readable style that engages both scholarly and general audiences. Distribution is through a cooperative agreement with the Johns Hopkins University Press. More than 100 MdHS titles are included in the Library of Congress catalog.

The Friends of the Press is an independent charitable organization committed to providing financial support for new publications of the MdHS.
