The Vulcan Historical Review is an annual history journal produced by students at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. It is sponsored by the Chi Omicron chapter of Phi Alpha Theta, the national history honor society, and the UAB School of Behavioral and Social Sciences.

Founded in 1997, the review is named for Giuseppe Moretti's statue of Vulcan, which has symbolized Birmingham since 1904. Articles for the review are by UAB students and alumni and may be on any historical topic. Many issues contain original research on the history of Birmingham and Jefferson County.

The Vulcan has won several Gerald Nash History Journal Prizes, awarded by the Phi Alpha Theta honor society to the best student history journals in the United States. The Vulcan won first place in 1999 and tied for first in 2001. The journal placed second or third in 1997, 1998, 2000, 2006, and 2012.

Copies of the review were given away in the UAB History Department office in Ullman Hall. In 2007 the Vulcan was also offered for sale at Blazer Bookstore at UAB and at Little Professor Book Center in Homewood.

Don Stewart's montage drawing of Vulcan decorated the cover of the 2012 issue.
