In addition to peer-reviewed scholarly articles, The Woody Guthrie Annual contains book and record reviews, news, and notices of relevant events. The journal is comprehensively indexed and archived in the appropriate online repositories.

The editors invite articles not only on Guthrie himself, but also on the cultural and political movements in which he was involved, his associations, and his legacy - all we ask is that a firm connection with Guthrie be maintained throughout the article.
