The Journal of Inklings Studies provides a forum for rigorous academic engagement with the thought of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, Owen Barfield, and their intellectual and literary peers and forebears. In this way, it seeks to contribute to the reception of these thinkers in theology, philosophy, and literary studies, both in the UK and worldwide.

The Journal of Inklings Studies is a collaboration of the Oxford University C.S. Lewis Society, the Charles Williams Society, the Owen Barfield Literary Estate, and the G.K. Chesterton Library. It is fully peer-reviewed and indexed in the MLA.

The Journal of Inklings Studies appears twice annually (April and October) in print and electronic formats. Subscribers have access to the full electronic archive both of JIS and of its predecessor, The C.S. Lewis Chronicle. In addition, the full archive of book reviews of both JIS and the Chronicle is on open access as a service to the growing community of Inklings readers and scholars.

NEWS

We are very pleased to be welcoming the G.K. Chesterton Library among our collaborators. The Chesterton Library is the foremost collection of Chestertoniana in the world, including Chesterton's own collection of books (many with extensive marginalia), his desk and typewriter, and a vast number of original artworks (many of them characters drawn for the Toy Theatre. The collection was built up by Mr Aidan Mackey, and is now owned and managed by the G.K. Chesterton Library Trust. We hope that this collaboration will lead to more engagement with this important influence on the Inklings in the Journal, as well as to the publication of materials held in the G.K. Chesterton Library.

Our Autumn issue will be a special issue on The Inklings and the Bible. It will be published in October 2014, and include feature articles on Tolkien's translation of the Book of Jonah for the Jerusalem Bible, on Lewis’ Liar, Lunatic or Lord “trilemma”, on Lewis’ use of Jerome, and other topics.
