The Cormac McCarthy Journal is a peer-reviewed journal focusing on the works and influence of Cormac McCarthy. The journal publishes articles, notes, and reviews related to Cormac McCarthy's novels, dramas, and screenplays, the film adaptations of his work, and other appropriate scholarly materials.

CMJ is affiliated with The Cormac McCarthy Society. Formally, The Society was founded in 1995 as a State of Florida nonprofit educational organization by scholars and interested lay readers (who had originally met at the conference) of McCarthy’s works in cooperation with Marty Priola, Society Webmaster, who was then running a small independent web site devoted to Cormac McCarthy. The Society’s stated purpose is “to further the scholarship and general appreciation of Cormac McCarthy’s writing and to facilitate the gathering of scholars and enthusiastic lay readers alike who share a common interest in Cormac McCarthy and his work.”
