Historical Journal Mizoram

Publication of journal is one of the key functions of the Association. The Association held its annual session cum – seminar every year since its inception and each of the research papers presented in the seminar were published in the journal entitled 'Historical Journal Mizoram' in the next year. Accordingly, the Association published the first edition of the journal entitled 'Historical Journal Mizoram' in 1982 as private circulation as the association did not get permission from the Registration of Newspaper of India(RNI). As such, the journal was published without RNI permission till its seventh edition.

Then the 'Historical Journal Mizoram' was registered by RNI, New Delhi under MIZBIL/2000/2056 on September 23, 2000. Accordingly, from this onward (2000), the publication of journal as required by RNI, was given a new volume starting from Voume I Issue No. 1.

Fortunately in 2010, the Journal was given the International Standard Serial Numbers (ISSN) with ISSN No. 0976-0202.
