Publishing can be a method of communication between historical organizations and their publics.

This Technical Leaflet stresses the importance of publishing when public history was still establishing itself as a distinct and scholarly field.

John J. Walklet, Jr. overviews different types of publications for history organizations and the types of audiences these reach.

Audiences include those who have a general interest in history or a more specialized interest, publications for children, and scholarly works.

He provides tips for promoting publications and the logistics of bringing a work to publication, from preparation to design to manufacturing and personnel costs.
