University of Illinois Press Journals

The University of Illinois Press is proud to publish the official journal of the AFS, the Journal of American Folklore.

The Journal of American Folklore (the quarterly journal of the American Folklore Society since the Society’s founding in 1888) publishes scholarly articles, notes, and commentaries directed to a wide professional audience. Read Vol. 133, No. 529, Summer 2020 open-access.

After a large number of papers about “Fake News” were proposed for the 2017 Annual Conference of the American Folklore Society, the editorial team of the Journal of American Folklore decided that the papers would make for an interesting and timely special issue of the journal. In Fall 2018, the special issue on “Fake News” from the Journal of American Folklore (vol. 131, no. 522) became available on JSTOR and in print in mid-October.

For more information about what the Journal of American Folklore publishes and how to submit, please visit the Journal’s Exhibit.

We are also proud to publish Ethnomusicology and American Music.

American Music is an independent, peer-reviewed journal published quarterly which presents scholarly research about music from all of the Americas.

Ethnomusicology‘s scholarly articles represent current theoretical perspectives and research in ethnomusicology and related fields.
