Good question. The answer deserves a separate thread, but there is no shortage of journals concerned with the holocaust, either in isolation or along with more general content. These include:
1. Holocaust and Genocide Studies
(Oxford: UP, on behalf of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, 1987-), which describes itself as "the major forum for scholarship on the Holocaust and other genocides";
2. Holocaust Studies: a journal of culture and history
(Valentine Mitchell: 1992-), an "innovative and interdisciplinary journal bringing together the best of current research into the Nazi persecution and mass murder of the Jews and other Nazi genocides", associated with the British Association of Holocaust Studies and supported by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany;
3. Idea: a Journal of Social Issues
, "dedicated to serious analysis and study of issues relating to holocaust, genocide, mass murder, mind control and the abuse of power";
4. Studies in Christian-Jewish Relations
, which "publishes peer-reviewed scholarship on the history, theology, and contemporary realities of Jewish-Christian relations";
5. War Crimes, Genocide and Crimes against Humanity
, a "multidisciplinary, peer reviewed scholarly journal dedicated to understanding the conceptualization, aetiology, and prevention of violations in international and criminal law";
6. Dapim: Studies on the Holocaust
(Taylor & Francis), "an inter-disciplinary publication which promotes the study of the Holocaust period and the issue of anti-Semitism through the various disciplines and methodologies, and gives expression to new research agendas in Israel and around the world" which is supported by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims against Germany;
7. Journal for the Study of Antisemitism
8. Holocaust and Modernity: Studies in Ukraine and the World
(Ukrainian Center for Holocaust Studies, 2005-);
9. Genocide Studies and Prevention
, an "international, interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that addresses cutting-edge issues in the field of genocide studies and related areas";
10. Journal of Genocide Research
(Taylor & Francis, 1999-), "a cross-disciplinary journal that promotes the scholarly study of genocide", which is connected to the International Network of Genocide Scholars;
11. Dimensions: A Journal of Holocaust Studies
, published by the Anti-Defamation League's Braun Holocaust Institute;
12. Holocaust Studies and Materials
[Zagłada Żydów. Studia i Materiały], Polish Center for Holocaust Research, 2005-).
Not all of these are academic and some of the sources of funding don't suggest neutrality. Their level seems similar to Inconvenient History
. I predict that revisionists would not get far with some of them, but I am not being entirely frivolous in suggesting that some of the more original revisionist scholars could make contact and see what happened. Has this happened recently, or at all?

Here's an example of what happens when Revisionists submit their work for peer review:
[Citing the case of Germar Rudolf.] Yes, but that was a long time ago and the potential value of Rudolf's work has been acknowledged by Ernst Nolte, a senior German academic and historian. Are we to hold grudges and remain in a hole/splendid isolation for ever?

Again, a lot of these cases are old news. Harry Elmer Barnes died in 1968.
