The Journal of Inklings Studies is the premier academic journal on the Oxford literary circle known as the Inklings, and on their intellectual and literary debts and legacies. Established in 2005 (originally as the C.S. Lewis Chronicle), the journal has been publishing some of the best scholarship in the field, as well as original material by its subject authors.
It expands this tradition in the newly launched Inklings Studies Supplements.
