The JOURNAL OF HAITIAN STUDIES (JOHS) is the official publication of the Haitian Studies Association. It is the only refereed journal dedicated solely to scholarship on Haiti and Haiti's relations with the International Community. The journal's editorial board consists of leading national and international scholars specializing in a wide range of academic fields, including political science, sociology, education, literature, and religion.

JOHS publishes articles in English, French and Haitian Kreyol. Please send an abstract of 150 words, along with your paper. Papers should not exceed 25 pages of double-spaced text, including endnotes. As papers are sent out for blind review, include your name, address and e-mail address on a separate cover sheet only.
