Scholarly Journals in My Field

I was asked by another blogger to give a list of scholarly journals for the fields of 19th and 20th Century Peninsular Novel. It is important to identify significant journals in one's own field. We don't have a clear hierarchy of journals in my field, but these are the "big five," in my opinion, along with two more specialized outlets.


Revista de Estudios Hispánicos

This is one of the best journals for 19th century because the editor is a specialist in this field. The editorial board has Charnon-Deutsch, Delgado, Fernández Cifuentes, Haidt, Johnson, Labanyi, Pope, Resina, Sieburth. In other words, a lot of the best scholars in 18th and 19th century. I am on the editorial board myself, so I am biased.

Hispanic Review
MLN (Hispanic Issue)
Revista Hispánica Moderna

These three journals retain their prestige. Publishing there in any field is seen as a plum.

Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos

This journal is well-edited, with a rigorous editorial process generally speaking.


Now edited at Temple, it is a good journal that lacks the traditional prestige of HR or or REH.

Anales Galdosianos

Obviously this is a journal read by anyone interested in Galdós.

Thank you so much for this great list!

I just submitted to one of these journals, and I'm terrified. I published there before, though, so it shouldn't be that bad. :-)
