Because The Latin Americanist is a multi-disciplinary journal, we accept the style and formatting each author uses in their own discipline. Manuscripts can be in English, Spanish, or Portuguese, and should not exceed 10,000 words.  They should be double-spaced. Because TLA uses a double-blind review process, all self-identifiers (including name and acknowledgments) should be removed from the manuscripts, and can be inserted later if it is accepted for publication. The manuscript should be original and not submitted elsewhere.

To submit, please go to The Latin Americanist’s online ScholarOne Manuscripts platform. Once there, complete the following steps:

  1. On the right-hand side of the screen, click on ‘Register here’ and input the required steps
  2. Once complete, click on ‘Author Center’ and login
  3. Click on “Click here to submit a new manuscript”
  4. Finish the remaining steps.
 

OnlineOpen is available to authors of primary research articles who wish to make their article available to non-subscribers on publication, or whose funding agency requires grantees to archive the final version of their article. With OnlineOpen, the author, the author’s funding agency, or the author’s institution pays a fee to ensure that the article is made available to non-subscribers upon publication via Wiley Online Library, as well as deposited in the funding agency’s preferred archive. For the full list of terms and conditions, see:

Prior to acceptance there is no requirement to inform an Editorial Office that you intend to publish your paper OnlineOpen if you do not wish to. All OnlineOpen articles are treated in the same way as any other article. They go through the journal’s standard peer-review process and will be accepted or rejected based on their own merit.
