About the Journal of Popular Culture

The Journal of Popular Culture is a peer-reviewed journal and the official publication of the Popular Culture Association. The popular culture movement was founded on the principle that the perspectives and experiences of common folk offer compelling insights into the social world. The fabric of human social life is not merely the art deemed worthy to hang in museums, the books that have won literary prizes or been named “classics,” or the religious and social ceremonies carried out by societies’ elite. The Journal of Popular Culture continues to break down the barriers between so-called “low” and “high” culture and focuses on filling in the gaps a neglect of popular culture has left in our understanding of the workings of society.

The Journal of Popular Culture is published six times a year and is available in print form in roughly 1400 university libraries worldwide. The Journal of Popular Culture is also indexed/abstracted in: Academic Search Elite; Academic Search Premier; America: History and Life; Cambridge Scientific Abstracts Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts; Communication Abstracts; Corporate ResourceNet; EBSCO MasterFILE Elite; EBSCO MasterFILE Premier; EBSCO MasterFILE Select; Humanities Abstracts; Humanities Index; International Bibliography of the Social Sciences; Linguistics and Language Behavior Abstracts; Modern Language Association Bibliography; Periodical Abstracts Library; Periodical Abstracts Research II; Political Science and Government Abstracts; ProQuest Social Science Plus Text; Social Services Abstracts; Sociological Abstracts; CatchWord; Historical Abstracts; Ingenta; TOPICsearch; Wilson OmniFile V; Wilson Social Sciences Abstracts; Wilson Social Sciences Index; World History FullTEXT; and Worldwide Political Science Abstracts.
