HUMOR was established as an international interdisciplinary forum for the publication of high-quality research papers on humor as an important and universal human faculty.
Humor research draws upon a wide range of academic disciplines including anthropology, biology, computer science, education, family science, film studies, history, linguistics, literature, mathematics, medicine, philosophy, physiology, psychology, and sociology. At the same time, humor research often sheds light on the basic concepts, ideas, and methods of many of these disciplines. The Editorial Board and the Board of Consulting Editors are composed of prominent humor researchers who specialize in these disciplines.
"Humor" publishes original contributions in the following areas: - interdisciplinary humor research - studies on humor theory - studies of humor research methodologies - applications of one or more disciplines to the study of humor - applications of humor research to one or more disciplines - studies of humor technology - humor material databases. Contributions take the form of empirical observational studies, theoretical discussions, presentations of research, short notes, reactions/replies to recent articles, book reviews, and letters to the editors. All the materials are thoroughly refereed. "Humor" is a peer-reviewed journal of international scope.
The Journal is the official publication of the International Society for Humor Studies (ISHS).
