The Respo Award is presented to the journal that receives the most consistently positive posts for a period of two consecutive years in the “Journals” category at http://hispanistas.com/. The inaugural award was granted to the editors of Decimonónica in 2014.

“Respo” refers to “responsible”/”responsable,” the virtue that all journals should exhibit when handling our colleagues’ articles. In many instances, someone’s continuing employment depends upon the editorial staff’s responsible processing of the manuscript: prompt acknowledgement of receipt of article, quick decision time (no more than 2-3 months from date article was received), constructive feedback for the ms in question, and reasonable amount of time between acceptance and publication. The Respo Award recognizes a journal that demonstrates such responsibility and enjoys high esteem in the profession as reflected in the blog posts.
