Journal of Appalachian Studies
To promote scholarly research about the Appalachian region, the Appalachian Studies Association publishes two issues of the Journal of Appalachian Studies (JAS) each year. The first publication, entitled Proceedings of the Annual Appalachian Studies Conference, incorporated papers presented at the annual Appalachian Studies Conference. In order to encourage library subscriptions, the name was changed to theJournal of the Appalachian Studies Association (JASA) in 1989. The publication, which now includes papers, reviews, studies, articles, and essays, was given its current name when the ASA moved to its first main headquarters at West Virginia University in the early 1990s. The JASis now published at Marshall University in Huntington, WV, where the main ASA office is now located.
By providing a venue for pieces regarding all aspects of Appalachia, the JAS is one way in which the Association fulfills its mission. Subscriptions to the JAS are included in annual Appalachian Studies Association and Conference membership. Articles, essays, and studies included in the JAS come from a wide array of disciplines. Anyone can submit work to the JAS for publication consideration, but all submissions must follow the guidelines on the Journal Submissions page.
