Finnish National Agency for Education (EDUFI)

Journal of Finnish Studies

In 1997, the Finnish Studies Program at the University of Toronto established the only English language journal in its field, the Journal of Finnish Studies (JoFS), with Prof. Börje Vähämäki as Editor-in-Chief. JoFS publishes scholarly articles of relevance to Finnish language, literature, and culture, but also to Finnish North American language and culture. JoFS also publishes book reviews.

JoFS is currently in its 22nd volume. In 2009, Professor Beth L Virtanen became Editor-in-Chief, and JoFS moved to Finlandia University in Hancock, Michigan. Since January 2011, JoFS has resided within the Department of English at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas, and is edited by Professor Helena Halmari.
