The Journal of Folklore Research: An International Journal of Folklore and Ethnomusicology is a peer-reviewed academic journal of folklore, folklife, and ethnomusicology. Published by Indiana University Press, the journal is an international forum for current theory and research among scholars of traditional culture. Its pages include incisive examinations of vernacular or traditional expressive forms, as well as essays that address the fieldwork experience and the intellectual history of folklore and ethnomusicology studies.[1]

History

The journal was established in 1942 as the Hoosier Folklore Bulletin and continued in 1945 as Hoosier Folklore.[2] It was renamed in 1951 as Midwest Folklore (ISSN 0544-0750)[3][4] and continued from 1964 to 1983 under Richard Dorson as the Journal of the Folklore Institute (ISSN 0015-5934).[5] Since July 2002, the Journal of Folklore Research has been published and distributed by the Indiana University Press [6]

The Journal of Folklore Research is run through the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology at Indiana University Bloomington. Following Richard Dorson, prominent scholars in folkloristics have historically served as editors of the journal, including Mary Ellen Brown, John Holmes McDowell, Moira Smith, Judah Cohen, and Jason Baird Jackson. Ray Cashman is scheduled to become the next editor of the publication.

The Journal of Folklore Research also publishes reviews of recently published scholarly works in folkloristics and ethnomusicology. These reviews are not published in the print version of the journal but are published exclusively online and are freely available without a subscription.
