The Journal of Latino-Latin American Studies (JOLLAS)
is an interdisciplinary, international, and peer reviewed on-line journal housed at the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Office of Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS). The journal publishes monographic research articles, thematical review, theoretical articles, policy briefs, research notes, teaching notes, and review essays on topics of relevance to the fields of Latino Studies and Latin American and Caribbean Studies broadly understood. We encourage contributions from the humanities and the social sciences that engage with academic debates and public effects of every aspect of the Latino experience in the United States, as well as work that critically and reflexively advances knowledge of, from, and about Latin America and the Caribbean. We also welcome scholarship that discusses issues relevant to the Latin American and Caribbean diaspora and Border Studies in the Americas. JOLLAS is receptive to scholarship coming from a variety of theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches. We invite articles on all relevant periods, from colonial times to the present that explore local, national, transnational, hemispheric, and global aspects of these fields of scholarship.
Articles submitted to the JOLLAS should be original contributions and not be under consideration, published, or be awaiting publication elsewhere. Currently JOLLAS publishes articles in English and Spanish. English translations of Spanish and Portuguese language articles that have already been published might be accepted provided this is previously discuss with the editors. If an author is publishing a closely related article elsewhere, this fact should be stated in a cover note to the editors. Authors of articles published in the journal assign copyright to JOLLAS.
