of Romance Studies publishes
up to three special issues a year on a wide range of themes bearing relation to
languages, literature and culture. Proposals for themed special issues in any
of the areas covered by the journal are welcome.
Special issues normally consist of 6 or 7
articles (6,000 – 8,000 words
each in length) preceded by an introduction. In the first instance, prospective
editors of special issues should contact the general editors of the journal to
provide a rationale for the issue and a list of intended contributors.
The general editors will be able to give some indication of potential
publication dates. However, it is only when final copy of the special issue is
submitted for peer review that a firmer indication can be given. Editors of
special issues should also bear in mind that since articles are submitted to
rigorous double-blind peer review, it is not possible to guarantee that all
articles will be accepted for publication. It is their responsibility to ensure
that contributors to their special issue are made aware of this.
If an insufficient number of articles is accepted to compose a special issue,
the general editors may suggest grouping those that have passed peer review into
a research cluster as part of a mixed issue.
Authors published in Journal of Romance Studies certify that their works are original and their own. The editors certify that all materials, with the possible exception of editorial introductions, book reviews, and some types of commentary, have been subjected to double-blind peer review by qualified scholars in the field.
While every effort is made by the publishers and the editorial board to see that no inaccurate or misleading data, opinions, or statements appear in this journal, they wish to make it clear that the data and opinions appearing in the articles herein are the sole responsibility of the contributor concerned.
