Pilapil, MD, (1938 - 2019), who edited the journal for 25 years. The editors highlight Gil's enduring legacy as a community-based historian and editor in shaping the FANHS Journal and FANHS research more broadly.

The FANHS Journal is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal published by FANHS. The journal is published biennially (one volume every other year) with the aim to eventually publish one volume every year. The goal of the journal is to promote the mission of FANHS by publishing, disseminating, and promoting research related to Filipino American history. The journal publishes research by community-based and academic historians as well as personal histories. It is looking to expand its genres and dialogues through new journal sections like "Collaborating with Our Ancestors" where there are intergenerational conversations between authors of today and classic pieces.
