Debuting in 2016, Journal of Genius and Eminence (JGE) is a scholarly, peer-reviewed periodical focused on the most exceptional human talents, the influences on and results of those talents, and contexts in which they develop and flourish. JGE welcomes historical, psychological, sociological, and neurological articles. The approach is interdisciplinary and may include perspectives not listed above. Historiometric studies are especially welcome. Case studies of geniuses and eminent individuals will be published, as long as they are well-connected to existing scholarship. Articles focused on the concepts of “genius” and “eminence” (rather than on particular geniuses) will certainly be considered, while entirely speculative papers are outside of the scope of this journal.

Publication Schedule

JGE was published as a single-issue volume in 2016, and will be published twice per year thereafter.
