Hispanic Studies Review (HSR) is an international refereed journal published twice a year by the Department of Hispanic Studies at the College of Charleston. The journal welcomes submissions on cultural studies, applied and theoretical linguistics, and the literatures of the Spanish-speaking worlds and their contact zones. HSR particularly invites scholarship with approaches that are interdisciplinary and/or engage innovative dialogues. HSR only accepts electronic submissions at [hsr@cofc.edu], and each manuscript will undergo a rigorous double-blind peer review.

  1. I’ve had a great experience with HSR. I received an R&R decision within four months of submitting. The comments were thorough and rigorous and they helped me to make the article much stronger, the goal of the peer review process. I resubmitted and received an acceptance within a month that informed me in which number the piece would be published. The editor is very responsive and professional in his communications.

    On a more general note, I am thrilled to see the launch of a journal with such a dynamic editorial staff and readers. Judging from the contents of the first volume and my experience with the review process, HSR is sure to become a prominent journal in the field.

  2. I’ve had a very positive experience working with the editorial staff of HSR. There was about a 4 month turn around from submission to acceptance. This journal is quickly becoming a reference for many scholars in the field. It is refreshing to see the range of established authors as well graduate students and early career scholars are welcome to publish here. A further positive note is that it is open access. Hopefully, journals such as HSR will lead the way toward changing the model of the traditional overpriced journal.

  3. I had a positive experience with this journal, although the turnaround times were slower than what previous commenters indicated. It took five months to receive a first answer, which was a conditional acceptance pending revisions. The reviewers’ comments were very helpful and constructive. I sent back revisions in two weeks, but and received a final acceptance about 2 months later. About 7.5 months total from submission to acceptance.
