American Studies in Scandinavia is a peer-reviewed journal, which includes English-language abstracts for all published articles, within the field of American Studies. As an internationally well-known and respected journal, it is our goal to rank as the most distinguished American Studies journal in Europe. The journal engages a vibrant scholarly community and has published state of the art scholarly articles and book reviews since being established in 1968. The journal is interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary and open to scholars from fields as varied as history, literature, politics, geography, media studies, ethnic studies, cultural studies, law, economics, and linguistics. The journal is published twice a year by the Nordic Association for American Studies (NAAS). NAAS is the joint and principal academic organization for American Studies in the Nordic countries.
The journal - currently edited by Anders Bo Rasmussen, Henry King, and Anne Mørk with the assistance of Jay Cannon - is committed to Open Access publishing through CBS Open Journals.
