      The Mark Twain Journal is a twice-yearly periodical devoted to the life and works of the American author Mark Twain, drawing where possible on contemporary sources. The Journal also explores his family and social relationships as well as his literary and intellectual connections.

Founded in 1936 by Cyril Clemens (editor, 1936-1982), the eclectic Mark Twain Journal is one of the oldest American journals devoted to a single author. Its second editor, Dr. Thomas A. Tenney, oversaw it from 1983-2012. The current editor, Dr. Alan Gribben, formed an affiliation with the Center for Mark Twain Studies at Elmira College, which now serves as its editorial address. It also has a formal affiliation with the Mark Twain Circle of America. A national editorial board advises the editors about polices and submissions. The Mark Twain Journal receives assistance from the Mark Twain Foundation.
