About the Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association
The Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association (JALA) is the only journal devoted to Lincoln scholarship. In addition to selected scholarly articles—on Lincoln in the popular media, for example, or British reactions to the War— the journal features primary source documents such as photographs, newly discovered letters and other unpublished material. JALA is the official journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association.
The Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association was founded in 1987, as the successor of Papers of the Abraham Lincoln Association, which was published from 1979 to 1986. The journal is published in print by the University of Illinois Press and made freely available to read online by Michigan Publishing.
