Humor Journals


This is the journal of the International Society for Humor Studies. It provides an interdisciplinary forum for the publication of high-quality articles on humor as an important and universal human faculty. Contributions include theoretical papers, original research reports, scholarly debates, short notes, book reviews, and letters to the editors.

Studies in American Humor

This is the journal of the American Humor Studies Association. It publishes essays, review essays, and book reviews on all aspects of American humor. Submissions of essay manuscripts of between 5000 and 8000 words are welcome. The journal also invites individuals to send books for review; books and essays for our feature, “The Year’s Work in American Humor Studies”; and primary texts with short analytical essays for “The Recovery Room."  

I believe there are more I just need to take the time to track down the websites and call information.
