Hispania, the official journal of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP), invites the submission of original, unpublished manuscripts on applied linguistics, cultural studies, culture, film, language, linguistics, literary criticism, literature, and pedagogy having to do with Spanish and Portuguese. Hispania publishes scholarly articles and reviews that are judged to be of interest to specialists in the discipline(s) as well as to a diverse readership of teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
All manuscripts submitted for publication should display thorough and comprehensive knowledge of the subject and field. Further considerations in the evaluation of manuscripts include:
- Contribution to the advancement of knowledge
- Originality of method or focus
- Organization of argument
- Clarity of expression
Articles may refer to but not repeat previously published content. Articles and reviews may be in Spanish, Portuguese, or English. Hispania is published quarterly (March, June, September, and December) and is a member of the Council of Editors of Learned Journals.

- Publishers and authors should submit their materials for possible selection to Domnita Dumitrescu, Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, California State University, Los Angeles, 5151 State University Dr., Los Angeles, CA 90032. Because of the number of works that correspond to Hispania’s broad scope, not all requests to review specific items can be granted.

- An invitation to review does not guarantee publication.
- All reviews must pass through a double-anonymous review process and publication decisions are based upon reviewer comments and the discretion of the editors.
