Journal of Folklore Research

Vol. 40 (2003) through current issue

The Journal of Folklore Research has provided an international forum for current theory and research among scholars of traditional culture since 1964. Each issue includes topical, incisive articles of current theoretical interest to folklore and ethnomusicology as international disciplines, as well as essays that address the fieldwork experience and the intellectual history of folklore and ethnomusicology studies. Contributors include scholars and professionals in additional fields, including anthropology, area studies, communication, cultural studies, history, linguistics, literature, performance studies, religion, and semiotics.

Submission Guidelines

Authors may register with the Journal of Folklore Research and submit manuscripts for consideration via the Journal’s online submissions portal: http://www.jfr.indiana.edu. All submissions should be accompanied by an abstract of no more than 250 words, an author biography of no more than 50 words, and three to five keywords. Manuscripts must be submitted in Microsoft Word (.doc or .docx) or in Rich-Text (.rtf) format. All text, including quotations and endnotes, should be double-spaced; in style and presentation, text should conform to the 16th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Authors without ready access to the CMS may consult the Submissions section of the website, which includes an abbreviated style sheet, a sample article, and instructions for ensuring blind peer review.

Size all images to no more than 5 inches (12.5 cm) horizontally. All images, tables, diagrams, and figures should be uploaded as supplemental files rather than embedded in the manuscript itself. In the manuscript file, please indicate where each graphic should appear by inserting a "callout" description in the appropriate location (e.g., <fig. 2 here>). Drawings and maps must be submitted in a form suitable for publication without redrawing. Submit captions for all graphic elements by completing the supplemental file information form during the manuscript submission phase.

Inquiries concerning manuscript submission should be directed to the JFR editorial staff at jfr@indiana.edu.
