Guide for Authors
Hispania invites submission of original, unpublished articles on Hispanic or Luso-Brazilian literature, language, linguistics, and pedagogy written in Spanish, Portuguese, or English. Only members of AATSP may publish in Hispania. We strongly encourage authors to submit articles written in Spanish and Portuguese.
The first section includes scholarly articles on Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian literature and language that are judged to be of interest to specialists in the subject areas as well as to a diverse readership of teachers of Spanish and Portuguese. Articles for this section should display thorough and comprehensive knowledge of the subject and field. We prefer articles that are not narrow in scope. Further considerations in the evaluation of manuscripts are their contribution to the advancement of knowledge, originality of method or focus, organization, and clarity of expression, free from jargon. Lead articles should conform to MLA format, with length between 4,000 and 7,500 words, including endnotes and works cited. Bibliographical submissions may reach 20,000 words. The long-standing policy in this section and in departments that receive a large number of submissions is that publication may not exceed one article per author during a three-year period.
Initial submissions of articles for the first section should be in electronic form only, on diskette or sent by electronic mail (for fastest processing). Please do not send paper copy, except for graphic images, complex tables, and articles in linguistics that use special characters.
Articles for Departments may be not on paper and/or disk. See the following pages for instructions on submitting to Departments. Please double space throughout on papers, but single space text in word processor files.
Send all articles, for the first section as well as for Departments, to Dr. Estelle Irizarry, Editor of Hispania, Spanish Department Georgetown University, Washington, DC 20057-0989, or send via electronic mail.
Please send news and notes directly to the Preparers of Chapter News, Computers in Research and Teaching, The Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian World, Multimedia, and Professional News, following their indications regarding types of submissions, length, and mailing. Requests to review software should go directly to the Preparers of the Media/Computers Department, at the addresses listed. Instructions for Book Reviews are found in that section.
Enclose a card with your name, institutional affiliation, mailing address, telephone (and fax) number(s), and e-mail address, but do not include this information in the article itself. Please write the title of your submission on this card.
In typing the article, be careful not to include your name in a page header or in evident self-reference; any references to your previous writings should be in the third person so your identity is not obvious. Center the title on one line and, at the margin below, type the word �Abstract:� followed by a concise summary of no more than 150 words. Below that, type �Key Words:� and list up to ten terms of importance, separated by commas, for a subject index, for example: �19th century, Pardo Bazán (Emilia), Spanish literature, women's writing, narrative�. The abstract and key words should be in the same language as the essay.
The format must be strictly in accordance with the standard system of the 1985 MLA Style Manual, with parenthetical documentation and list of works cited. The author-date system as described in the MLA Style Manual is acceptable for linguistics and pedagogy. If you include notes, they must be manually typed out at the end, regardless of whether you have entered them as �endnotes� in your word processor. Please follow the MLA's recommendation to avoid essays like �content notes� that detract from the primary text.
Place all tables and charts mentioned in the text at the very end of the entire article or in a separate file. Send graphic images on paper only.
The electronic text should have single-spaced lines, with one-inch side margins. Type the whole text in one font style and size. Please use the TAB key or first line auto-indent feature of your word processor -not the space bar- to begin new paragraphs, and the TAB key to create columns in tables. Do not divide words with hyphens. Use standard typewriter style quotes and apostrophes, not curly �Smart Quotes� or angular quotes, and type two single hyphens for a dash.
This preferred method of submission allows us to acknowledge receipt and route the article to evaluators immediately. Be sure to send ASCII text only and replace all diacritics, foreign-language characters, and italics with the codes found in Hispania's computer section (�How to Prepare Text for Submission via Electronic Mail�). Send articles to either of the following addresses:
Authors may send PC-formatted diskettes of any size; Mac diskettes must be high density (with the initials HD on them and formatted for high density). We can accept files in the following word processor formats: WordPerfect 5. 1/5. 2 for PC (6.0 users must save the file as 5. 1/5. 2) and Mac; Microsoft Word (PC [Word for Windows 6. 0 users must save the file as 2.0] and Mac), XyWrite III Plus, Nota Bene 3. 0, and MacWrite. Any other word processor can be used if it can save documents as a WordPerfect 5. 1/5. 2 file. Mac and PC users, please turn off the �Fast Save� option. Identify the type of computer (IBM or Mac) and word processing programs on the disk label.
Mail diskettes in a protected envelope, enclosing a letter-size, self-addressed envelope with loose first-class return postage or international reply coupons for two ounces to:
