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.


ALEC

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. :-)
