J@rgonia is an electronic, peer-reviewed journal that publishes scholarly articles concerning ethnology, history and related fields. It was established in 2003 by the Department of History and Ethnology (Hela) at the University of Jyväskylä. J@rgonia is published by Historian ja etnologian laitoksen tutkijat ry (Registered Association of Hela Researchers), established in 2009.

New website was released in August 2009: http://research.jyu.fi/jargonia

J@rgonia is published twice a year. Its main scope is to publish articles written by postgraduate students studying culture, history and folklore or related fields. Articles are published in Finnish and in English. English-language translation and/or proofreading is the sole responsibility of the author. The editorial board is responsible for editing content only, and will return to authors manuscripts whose language does not meet J@rgonia's standards, asking them to have the language checked before resubmitting the article. Every article goes through a referee-process, in which two anonymous readers read and comment on the article before publication.

If you are interested in offering an article to be published in J@rgonia, please send an abstract of 400 words or a manuscript formatted with Chicago Manual of Style (http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/tools_citationguide.html ), to Editor-in-Chief, Ms. Kirsi-Maria Hytönen (kirsi-m.hytonen(at)jyu.fi). The editorial board of the publication reserves the right to evaluate and decide which articles will be published, based on the referee statements.
