March 2014 Issue of Hispania

The Editors invite you to read the March 2014 issue of Hispania, which, on top of our new, redesigned look, includes a guest column by Luis Hermosilla and articles on teacher efficacy and the National Spanish Examinations, Lorca’s puppet theater, and Marcelo del Río’s Proceso a Faubritten.  The issue may be accessed online at https://muse.jhu.edu/journals/hispania/toc/hpn.97.1.html 


 
Hispania, the official journal of the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP), invites the submission of original, unpublished manuscripts on language, linguistics, literature, literary criticism, film, culture, cultural studies, applied linguistics, and pedagogy having to do with Spanish and Portuguese. Throughout Hispania's history since its founding in 1917, it has published 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.

Hispania Policy Statements

Conflict of interest: Reviewers have the responsibility to disclose any known or suspected conflict(s) of interest and should thereby withdraw from the reviewing process. Such cases might include but are not limited to (1) the review of article or book/media review manuscripts for which the author is identified for any reason, (2) the review of books/media written by current or former colleagues, academic mentees, or others whose authorship compromises the integrity of the evaluation, and (3) any other circumstance that concerns the reviewer’s financial, academic, or personal interests.

 

Disclaimer: The material published in Hispania reflects the opinions of the authors and are not necessarily those of the editors or the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP). The editors of Hispania and the AATSP, therefore, accept no liability for the views expressed in book reviews, articles, or other content of the journal.

 

Responses: Authors who believe that their work has been seriously misrepresented in a book review or article may send a response to the editor, who reserves the right to publish it as appropriate.

Multiple submissions: Please submit only one original article manuscript for review to Hispania at a time. The journal does not allow multiple (simultaneous) submissions of original manuscripts.

Resubmission of manuscripts: Hispania receives many more manuscripts than we can publish, and we must make difficult decisions to accept only those that make a substantial, novel contribution of broad interest. As such, manuscripts returned to authors without advancing toward publication cannot be resubmitted for review.

Institutional Research Board (IRB): It is the policy of Hispania that all submitted research using human subjects (surveys, experimental studies, ethnographic studies, and others) at all educational levels does not violate the norms and regulations for the use of human subjects at the researcher’s home institution, especially in those situations in which a review board oversees the use of human subjects in research. Hispania reserves the right to ask for documentation should the need arise.

For more information about IRB and certificate, go to http://grants.nih.gov/grants/policy/hs/training.htm, click on protecting human research participants, click on registration, click on create account, and complete the modules. You will receive a certificate upon successful completion.

Open Access Statement and Policy:  Hispania and the AATSP are committed to the broad dissemination of scholarly work. Currently, Hispania is available to active AATSP members and individuals-at-large through Project MUSE, JSTOR, from institutional libraries worldwide, and it is available in print upon request. To facilitate compliance with professional/institutional requirements, the AATSP will grant permission to authors (and coauthors) of their material published in Hispania to self-archive their work on professional websites (e.g., an institutional digital commons, faculty webpage, etc.) for a fee of $500.00 (US) payable to the AATSP. An official PDF of published material may be posted six months after the work appears in print. To request permission, please contact Managing Editor Jennifer Brady at jbrady@aatsp.org
