Annales. Histoire, Sciences Sociales is a French scholarly journal after which the Annales School was named. The journal kept this name from 1929-39 but was later published under various titles. Annales school history is best known for incorporating social scientific methods into history in such fields as the history of mentalities.

The Annales was founded and edited by Marc Bloch and Lucien Febvre in 1929, while they were teaching at the University of Strasbourg, France and later in Paris, France. These authors, the former a medieval historian and the latter an early modernist, quickly became associated with the distinctive Annales approach, which combined geography, history, and the sociological approaches of the Année Sociologique (many members of which were their colleagues at Strasbourg) to produce an approach which rejected the predominant emphasis on politics, diplomacy and war of many 19th- and early 20th-century historians. Instead, they pioneered an approach to a study of long-term historical structures (la longue durée) over events and political transformations. Geography, material culture, and what later Annalistes called mentalités, or the psychology of the epoch, are also characteristic areas of study.
