“Formal Aspects of Computing” is not a history journal but it has had some interesting excursions into history. We’ve tried to get good technical obituaries on key figures (Apt’s on Dijkstra is excellent Vol 14, pp 92-98 as is the one on Manna Vol 31, No 6)

We also “commissioned” a series of papers (some of which actually arrived ;-) and are published in Vol 31, No 6 - see:

PLs are not FM as such but I’d be happy to look at any papers you might want to publish

I'm interested in writing on technical computer science history topics (e.g. programming language history) and I'm trying to identify venues for short-form/article length publications. The focus would be on the engineering decisions and impact, rather than the social or business impact, which I understand is "out of scope" for many of the typical historical journals.

Does this community have any recommendations?
