Slayage: The Journal of Whedon Studies is a academic journal with a focus of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and other Jossverse fandoms.

As of 2012 it is now published twice a year. It was originally a quarterly publication.

From the journal's website:

The idea of Slayage was born in January of 2001 as David Lavery (1949-2016) and Rhonda V. Wilcox considered over one hundred and forty proposals submitted for possible inclusion in Fighting the Forces: What's at Stake in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Rowman & Littlefield, 2002). Lavery and Wilcox learned, also, that two other collections of essays on Buffy were in the works. It seemed obvious that there existed a not-soon-to-be-exhausted international critical and scholarly interest in the series. With Whoosh! The Journal of the International Association of Xenoid Studies in mind as a model, Slayage was born.

In the winter of 2009, beginning with Volume 7, Issue 3, Slayage became The Journal of the Whedon Studies Association rather than The Online International Journal of Buffy Studies. In the summer of 2015, the name was once again changed to better reflect the nature of the journal: The Journal of Whedon Studies. [1]
