Call for Submissions — Western Folklore
About Western Folklore
Western Folklore (ISSN 0043-373X), the journal of the Western States Folklore Society (formerly California Folklore Society), is published quarterly in winter, spring, summer, and fall. Founded in 1942, it has become the leading American journal devoted to the description and analysis of regional, national, and international folklore and custom. Subscribers include professional and amateur folklorists, anthropologists, sociologists, and historians, as well as libraries, historical societies, and folk art museums.
Call for Submissions
We are currently seeking to develop a pipeline of high-quality submissions for our upcoming volumes. Submissions are encouraged from all fields as long as they deal substantively with folklore, folklife, the discipline or history of folklore, folklore theory, or other topics related to expressive human behavior anywhere in the world. Submissions that address folklore as informed by any academic field, methodological approach, or theoretical perspective shall be considered.
The journal publishes research articles and book/exhibit/media reviews in print, which are also made available in full-text online through a variety of research databases. Proposals for special issues will be considered at the discretion of the editor.
Submissions undergo a rigorous multi-tiered peer review process which includes the journal’s editorial staff and external reviewers.
September 15, 2017 is the deadline for submissions to be published in Vol. 77, No. 2 (Spring, 2018). Papers should be between 6,000 and 10,000 words in length.
