The EJHR is an open-access, academic journal published by Cracow Tertium Society for the Promotion of Language Studies and endorsed by The International Society for Humor Studies (ISHS). The EJHR publishes commissioned guest articles, peer-reviewed research articles and commentaries, book reviews and research notes, which are meant to track research projects from the start to the end of the project and provide details on rationale, methodology and project results and outcomes. The journal has a special focus on supporting PhD students and early career researchers by providing them with a forum within which to disseminate their work alongside established scholars and practitioners.
The EJHR welcomes submissions that combine research and practice or relevant applications, as well as empirical studies detailing their usefulness to the topic of humour. All papers received undergo a double-blind, peer-review process. In addition to scholars within humor research, we invite those as yet unfamiliar with (or wary of) humor research to enter the discussion. The elaboration of joint methodological frameworks is strongly encouraged. For further details or inquiries you may contact the Editors.
No charges are applied either for submitting, reviewing or processing articles for publication.
The journal is now listed in important international indexing bases including Scopus and Scimago ranking :

SCImago Journal & Country Rank 

This publication is supported by the CEES and ELM Scholarly Press.
