Oracle is Boston College's primary venue for undergraduate historical scholarship. Founded in 2019, Oracle serves as a resource for current and prospective students of history, whether at Boston College or otherwise. By showcasing exemplary undergraduate scholarship, Oracle also seeks to guide, inspire, and celebrate the next generation of historians. Sponsored by the Boston College Department of History, Oracle is guided by the belief that the study of history is important to more fully understanding the complexities of our modern, globalized world.
Articles published in Oracle are managed through the Open Journal System (OJS) and indexed by the Library of Congress and Google Scholar. The BLSR is also cataloged; recorded in WorldCat; listed in ExLibris, Serials Solution, OCLC, and Ebsco; and featured on the Boston College Library’s Open Access Journals Webpage and social media accounts.
