Oral Tradition Edited by John M. Foley In 2007, Oral Tradition ceased to be published in its traditional print format but is available online, free of charge. Additional information and links to issues currently available on line may be found at the home page for the Center for Studies in Oral Tradition at the University of Missouri. Oral Tradition has one volume per year. From Volume 1 through Volume 6, there were three numbers per volume. Volumes starting with 7 (1992) have two numbers per volume, but at least the same total number of pages is published in each volume. The greater single-issue length has also allowed the introduction of a new feature: "clusters" of essays on particular topics or areas, amid the customary mix of articles on a variety of fields. Back Issue Prices $45 per volume for libraries and Institutions $35 for individuals. All back volumes are available.
