The Journal of Mormon History is an official publication of the Mormon History Association (MHA). Its purpose is to publish scholarly work covering the full scope of Mormon history, which represents domestic and international perspectives of the several religious organizations that descend from what was first called the Church of Christ in 1830. MHA, organized in 1965, began publishing the Journal as a single issue in 1974. Single yearly issues continued through 1991 (vols. 1-17; 1986-1987 were combined into one issue, v. 13; no vol. 12 was published). Two issues of the Journal were published annually from 1992 through 2005 (vols. 18-31), and three issues appeared in both 2006 and 2007 (vols. 32-33). Beginning in 2008 (vol. 34) the Journal became a quarterly.
