According to Marshall Tymm and Mike Ashley in Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Weird Fiction Magazines, 1985, "Ostensibly the official organ of the University of Chicago Science Fiction Club, The Journal of Science Fiction was anything but the typical club publication. It ranks as one of the most mature and important fanzines of the 1950s. … This magazine is every bit as professional as any major publication, as was the intention of the editors. They were attempting to provide the field with a serious, central annual which surveyed the field of SF."
