About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The European Journal of Humour Research (EJHR)  is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal with an international multidisciplinary editorial board.

EJHR covers the full range of work being done on all aspects of humour phenomenon. EJHR is designed to respond to the important changes that have affected the study of humour but particular predominance is given to the past events and current developments in Europe.

An European Open-Access Journal of Humour Research

EJHR  is committed to theoretical openness characterized by the intent to publish a wide range of critical approaches, alongside the encouragement and development of innovative work that contains a trans-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary focus.
