Thymos: Journal of Boyhood Studies is a peer-reviewed academic journal established in 2007 as the fourth of five published by Men's Studies Press and the first worldwide to focus specifically on boys and boyhood.

The publisher's Scope reads: "THYMOS (ISSN: 1931-9045) is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to providing an interdisciplinary forum for the critical discussion of boyhood and the dissemination of current research and reflections on boys’ lives to a broad, cross-disciplinary audience of teachers and scholars, researchers and health-care practitioners, and policy-makers. The mission of the journal is to bring together contributions from and initiate dialogue between perspectives ranging from medical and legal practice, ethnographic inquiry, philosophical reflection, to curriculum design and policy-making. The topics of the journal will include boys and schooling, boys and feminism, parenting boys, son-father relations and the effect on boys of the missing father, boyhood subcultures and sexualities, physical and emotional abuse of boys, portrayal of boys in the media, boys in sports, and the folklore and myths of boyhood. THYMOS is committed to being international in scope and will solicit manuscripts from a variety of disciplines, including sociology, developmental psychology, sexology, psychoanalytic studies, ethnography and ethnology, history and historiography, cultural studies, literature, philosophy, pedagogy, and clinical and community health-care practice."
