Call for Bids - Sponsorship of The Latin Americanist

The Executive Committee of the Southeastern Council of Latin American Studies (SECOLAS) has issued a call for bids to sponsor its peer-reviewed journal The Latin Americanist (TLA).

Bids should be presented in writing, with the signature of an administrative officer authorized to approve the disbursement of institutional funds.

The bid to host The Latin Americanist should include a subvention equal to at least $10,000 per year ($50,000 total) to defray the costs of editing TLA. This subvention may take the form of released time, administrative assistance, travel support, and/or graduate student wages or stipends. The bid should also identify the names of the prospective editor of TLA as well as of the SECOLAS Annals (a special issue of TLA).

This term begins on January 1, 2019 and concludes December 31, 2023.

SECOLAS will end its publishing agreement with Wiley effective December 31, 2018. The Executive Committee is currently fielding proposals from potential publishers and intends to arrive at a decision at its 2018 meeting in March.

Interested parties should submit its bid rendered in a .pdf file to Steven Hyland, Secretary-Treasurer of SECOLAS (s.hyland@wingate.edu), via email no later Thursday, February 22, 2018, 5pm EST.
