RMN Newsletter is a peer-reviewed open-access bi-annual publication of Folklore Studies / Department of Philosophy, History, Culture and Art Studies, University of Helsinki (ISSN 2324-0636 print, ISSN 1799-4497 electronic), appearing in December and May of each year. The journal is primarily oriented to constructing an informational resource and discourse space for researchers of diverse and intersecting disciplines who share common interests in the problems, strategies, values and limitations of:
These interests are not bound to any one discipline, and the increasing movement toward interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary study and research projects makes it important to have a multidisciplinary informational resource. The primary orientation of the journal is therefore not the publication of research articles. It is instead oriented toward information about events, people, activities, developments and technologies, and research which is ongoing or has been recently completed. It also constructs a venue in which scholars can engage in discussion rather than constraining contributions to the conclusions of research (which are here presented in abstracts for rapid survey, directing the reader to the full publication).
