Founded in 1970, the magazine is issued three times a year (in April, August, and December), though past issues show that the magazine was originally released on a quarterly basis, until the review's fourteenth year. It is published at the University of Iowamarker in Iowa Citymarker. According to editor David Hamilton, The Iowa Review has a circulation of about 3,000, 1,000-1,500 of which is distributed to major bookstore chains. The reading period for unsolicited submissions is September-November; contest submissions for the Iowa Review Awards are read in January. In addition to space dedicated in the December issue to the Iowa Review Awards winners, the magazine has recently featured work from the University of Iowa's biannual NonfictioNow conference and from writers in the University of Iowa's International Writing Program. Past issues have also been dedicated to topics such as fiction from Israel and Palestine (11.1), contemporary women writers (12.2/3), and an homage to Ezra Pound (15.1).

According to the magazine's Web site, "Several hundred unsolicited manuscripts arrive each week through most of the year, from throughout the country and abroad, from which we select most of our contents."
