Author Guidelines

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.

Presenters at the March 2019 SECOLAS meeting in Oaxaca, Mexico are encouraged to submit their papers for possible publication in The Latin Americanist Annals issue. The Annals issue is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal published by SECOLAS, the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Winthrop University, and the University of North Carolina Press.

The Latin Americanist Annals issue publishes scholarly articles from any academic discipline that include original research concerning Latin America. Manuscripts may be in English, Spanish, or Portuguese, and should not exceed 25 double-spaced pages, including notes, tables, and works cited. Authors should include a 150-200 word abstract with their manuscripts.

Manuscripts should be formatted in the style sheet used in the contributor's discipline, such as University of Chicago, A Manual or Style or the MLA Style Sheet.

Manuscripts should be submitted by the deadline, July 31, 2019.
