Founded in 1950 by the Shakespeare Association of America, Shakespeare Quarterly is a refereed journal committed to publishing articles in the vanguard of Shakespeare studies, notes that bring to light new information on Shakespeare and his age, issue and exchange sections on the latest research and debates, theater reviews of significant Shakespeare productions, and book reviews to keep readers current with Shakespeare criticism and scholarship.
The journal is published quarterly in the spring, summer, fall, and winter and includes the World Shakespeare Bibliography Online. Compiled by Professor James Harner, the Bibliography attempts to record all important books, articles, book reviews, dissertations and dissertation abstracts, theatrical productions and theater reviews, and significant reprints of Shakespeare-related works issued during the year.
SQ's editor is Dr. David Schalkwyk, who is the director of research at the Folger Shakespeare Library.
John Burrows’s essay "A Second Opinion on 'Shakespeare and Authorship Studies in the Twenty-First Century,'" which appeared in the Fall 2012 issue of Shakespeare Quarterly, was cited by Willard McCarty in Humanist. An electronic forum for discussions on humanities computing and digital humanities, Humanist is published through the Alliance of Digital Humanities Organizations (ADHO) and the Office for Humanities Communication (OHC) and an affiliated publication of the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS).
