Founded in 1983, the Journal of the Short Story in English (JSSE) is a biannual journal entirely devoted to the short story and to short forms of writing. Under French-American direction (Belmont University, Nashville and the Centre de recherches inter-langues, Université d’Angers), it has an editorial team of international specialists who select articles according to the “double-blind review” principle with the aim of encouraging the broadest possible spectrum of analytical literary approaches. There are three types of issue devoted to general questions, themes or individual authors.
