Since 1915 The Royal Historical Society of Queensland Journal has been the leading avenue for regular publication of articles on Queensland’s history. It is published every three months and contains easy to read  and interesting articles with a high standard of research and referencing. 

In November 2008 the name of the RHSQ Journal changed to Queensland History Journal. The appearance of the Journal also changed with the introduction of a new glossy cover featuring the Queensland flag with the Maltese cross and some historical photographs.
