As of January 1, 2014, in order to
facilitate an effective transition to the new editor(s) of the Journal of American Folklore, current JAF
editors Tom DuBois and Jim Leary are no longer accepting new
submissions. They will spend 2014 working through the submissions received through the
end of 2013 and those articles that are already in the editorial pipeline.
When AFS names the new JAF editor in late spring 2014, the AFS website will post details about how and when to submit materials to the new editorial office.
