Founded in 1974, Studies in American Humor (ISSN 0095-280X) 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 (such as those
found in the 1999 special issue) for “The Recovery Room.” Contributors
interested in submitting manuscripts should review the 1999 issue or contact
the editor if they have questions.

Two letter-quality copies of the manuscript in MLA style should be submitted
with a stamped, self-addressed envelope (international contributors
excepted) and a copy of the word processor file (in PC MS-Word, WordPerfect,
or RTF format) on a 3.5” PC formatted floppy disk. (Chicago style will be
accepted only for the initial readers’ reviews of manuscripts; all
submissions must be converted to MLA if accepted for publication.) Since the
journal practices blind submission, the author’s name should appear only on
the title page of the manuscript. Essay submissions, materials for “The Year
’s Work” and “The Recovery Room,” and queries should be addressed to Karen
