History Compass is fast becoming the go-to venue for up-to-date historiography; in short, essential. It maintains a consistently high scholarly standard (to judge from my readings), is well-edited, and easy to access and to search.

I too found this very useful. In a short time I found up-to-date review articles on urban history, on the role of space in history, and on postcommunist Balkan historiography. I would be very pleased if we could get a regular subscription.

I found some interesting articles on Compass that I hadn't seen referenced elsewhere. A useful resource, though I had difficulty accessing some of the content in the Blackwell links.
