As an area studies journal, the Journal of the Southwest is intended as an interdisciplinary research resource in the study of the region's peoples and cultures.

The journal was initially established in 1959 as a periodical sponsored by the University of Arizona, under the name Arizona and the West. In 1987 the journal's name was changed to the current Journal of the Southwest, with the volume numbering carried over under the new name and format.
