The European Journal of Humour Research

about the journal

The European Journal of Humor Research (EJHR) is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal with an international Scholarly Council representing various scientific disciplines. Although geographically covering the Old Continent, the journal aims at a wide range of international audiences and authors. The area of interest of EJHR covers the full range of research conducted on all aspects of the humour phenomenon. The journal's task is to describe all the significant changes taking place in the field of humour research, with special emphasis, however, on European issues. EJHR also aims to promote diversity and to provide an important forum for discussion in the field. The journal is open to various theoretical approaches and a broad spectrum of research paradigms, while supporting innovation in research that crosses the boundaries of recognised scientific disciplines.

EJHR is published electronically in English and offers open access to its published content. The journal publishes peer-reviewed scholarly articles, also commissioned by the Editorial Team, as well as shorter commentary articles, research reports and book reviews.
