The Walt Whitman Quarterly Review is a literary quarterly sponsored by the Graduate College and the Department of English and published by The University of Iowa. WWQR is the official journal of the Walt Whitman Studies Association, affiliated with the American Literature Association.

We are pleased to announce that, beginning with the next issue of the Walt Whitman Quarterly Review—the first number of volume 33—the journal becomes an open-access, online-only publication. With this final number of volume 32, then, the Walt Whitman Quarterly Review concludes its print run, and, with the next issue, removes the embargo for the current year's online issues. Nothing else will change: we will continue to offer the same high-quality, peer-reviewed essays about Whitman, his times, his influence, and his cultural contexts, and we will continue to offer extensive reviews of work about Whitman, including the ongoing annotated "Walt Whitman: A Current Bibliography." As the international journal of record for Whitman studies, we are excited about making our content freely available to users around the world.

Subscribers may send their email address or IP range to lib-ir@uiowa.edu in order to access the current year.
