Scottish Business and Industrial History

The Business Archives Council of Scotland publishes the Scottish Business and Industrial History journal, which contains articles by professional historians and independent scholars, covering a wide range of topics on Scotland’s business and industrial past.

The journal formerly known as Scottish Industrial History has been published by BACS since 1977 and is devoted to the dissemination of original historical research into all periods and facets of Scotland’s industrial and commercial past. The journal is provided as part of the annual subscription to the Business Archives Council of Scotland, and as well as containing scholarly articles, it also reports on the Council’s activities and on developments concerning Scotland’s business and industrial archives.

The latest edition of the journal volume 33 was published in January 2023. Back copies of the journal have been digitised and are available from 1977 through this website.
