Following the culmination of the Laotian civil war in the 1970s, thousands of the Hmong ethnic group were forced to leave Laos and became refugees, with many settling in the United States. For those interested in the Hmong diaspora, the open-access Hmong Studies Journal offers scholars in a variety of fields "the only peer-reviewed academic publication devoted to the scholarly discussion of Hmong history, Hmong culture, Hmong people, and other facets of the Hmong experience in the U.S., Asia and around the world." Launched in 1996, this long-running online journal is now in its nineteenth volume and is part of the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ). Here, visitors can read and download articles from all issues of this journal in PDF format, and also find links to other Hmong resources like census data and the Hmong Studies Virtual Library. Their most recent offering, published in August 2018, is a special issue focused on Hmong American Education. The Hmong Studies Journal is edited by Mark Pfeifer, who also directs the Hmong Resource Center Library in St. Paul, Minnesota.
