HIOL: Hispanic Issues On Line is an open-access, refereed scholarly electronic publication devoted to the study of Hispanic and Lusophone cultures. The journal aims to be an international forum for the analysis of current issues in our disciplines as well as a venue for new research dealing with areas of inquiry such as Literary Criticism, Theory and Historiography, Popular and Mass Culture, Hispanic Cultural Studies, Literature and Institutions, and Hispanic Sociolinguistics.

HIOL also publishes Debates, dedicated to an open exchange of ideas related to issues discussed within the Hispanic Issues Series and the HIOL electronic journal. Our editorial team welcomes the intellectual energy generated by the exchanges included in this section. Our aim is to offer a venue for a diversity of views on matters dealing with our disciplines. It should be noted, however, that we might not always agree with the views or opinions expressed in these pages.

  1. Browsing this journal, it looks like each issue is thematic, but are submissions only by invitation? If not, where are the future topics announced?

  2. I published in this journal and it was by invitation– the proposer of a thematic issue invited potential contributors, and then the entire proposed issue was run by the HIOL editors, who evaluated it and gave feedback/criticism/suggestions for changes and improvement.

  3. They accept proposals for monographic issues, just as they do with their book series, which is a classic in the field. I sent them a proposal for an edited volume and got very professional feedback in six weeks.

  4. I had a wonderful experience with them. Each manuscript goes through the same peer reviewed process that ones that end up in the book series. In fact, you do not know where it is going to end up (online or print) until after they approve the manuscript. Great feedback, wonderful communication.

    While they have an ISSN that labels them as a journal for lack of an alternative “id” instrument, calling it “Journal” is a misnomer. This venue is an Online series. But there is no label other than ISSN or ISBN. I hope the Board considers this in their description in the future.

    Moreover, perhaps HIOL should be listed under “editoriales” in this blog.

  5. HIOL is a top tier reference in the field. The feedback given was very helpful and professional. They are rather slow to respond. Indeed, the Managing Editor rarely does respond to questions and when he does there is an air of curtness about it. Nonetheless, publishing with HIOL is a rewarding experience.
