The Journal of Beat Studies is devoted exclusively to the scholarly criticism of Beat Generation writing and writers. Its mandate is to provide readers with intelligent and penetrating criticism across the range of Beat writing, including fiction, poetry, drama, autobiography, life writing, travel writing, and screenplay writing. The ultimate goal of the journal is to advance the quality of Beat Studies scholarship through the application of diverse critical perspectives that address Beat production as both complex art and cultural critique.

The fifth volume of the Journal of Beat Studies honors Ann Charters, emerita professor of English at UConn-Storrs, the first president of the Beat Studies Association, and the founder of the field of Beat Studies. Volume five features a new interview with Charters, the republication of her famed Jack Kerouac: A Bibliography (1967, 1975), never-before-published letters about the bibliography and her 1966 visit with Kerouac to review his archives, as well as testimonials from scholars, an essay on her Herman Melville/Charles Olson research, and photographs by and of Charters and other Beat writers.
