is owned and operated by the Economic History Association
with the support of other sponsoring organizations.


The Economic History Association owns and operates the website and mailing lists to provide resources and promote communication among scholars in economic history and related fields. The Economic History Society (U.K.), the Business History Conference,  the Cliometric Society, and the Economic and Business History Society also support the site.

EH.Net began in 1994 as the Econhist internet discussion list. It added several other discussion lists and was chartered in 1996 to provide a wide range of internet-based services to economic historians, historians of economics, economists, historians, related social scientists and the public.

These services include research abstracts and book reviews, a collection of course syllabi, a directory of economic historians, the EH.Net Encyclopedia of Economic and Business History, several databases, and numerous links to websites related to economic history.

The Economic History Association became EH.Net’s owner in 2003.
