  1. I submitted an article to RCEH in August and the reply came to me in December, so about a 5 month turn around. Not too bad. The article was not accepted, but I received excellent feedback from the readers and feel that their refusal of the article was valid based on the readers' criticisms.

  2. I got very good feedback within a reasonable amount of time. I was rejected, but they paid me good attention as a young scholar. Publishing here is a coup, so good luck. It's one of the best journals out there.

  3. This journal is ok. I considered submitting an article, since I've published in virtually all good journals for Spanish Studies. But then I found out authors have to subscribe to the journal, so I never sent them anything. It's sad some publications "charge" us to publish.

  4. I submitted an article and it was rejected. Some of their comments were a bit harsh, but most were very relevant. Their feedback helped me get it published in another very good journal. Then I submitted a second article to RCEH and was accepted about 3 months after I sent it. They gave me very good feedback again.

  5. I got very bizarre feedback. One reader said the paper was outstanding and another said it was terrible. I suppose that reader B had more weight with the editorial board since they didn't bother to send it to a third reader to break the tie.

  6. Anybody that has published? all comments here are from scholars whose articles were rejected, good feedback only. I wonder what their parameters are.

  7. I published there. My comment is the fourth one.

  8. It took them six months to reject my article. You have to subscribe to the journal ($65) in order to submit. There were two reviewers. One of the reviewers provided helpful comments, the other simply said that s/he didn't find the article 'very enlightening' (not helpful).

  9. Very long turnaround time (almost 7 months), only to find out that my article was rejected. Reviewer A liked it, reviewer B didn't like it, and neither really provided much in the way of comments. Editor didn't provide much in the way of feedback either. Having to subscribe is really a tad unprofessional, as well.

  10. Un colega mío me ha informado lo mismo: que la revista tarda 6 meses antes de dar una decisión. La verdad es que tal demora es completamente inaceptable para nuestros colegas cuyas vidas profesionales dependen de decisiones más rápidas...

  11. Sí, tardan seis meses en responder. Los lectores parecen ser expertos, aunque en mi caso se contrariaron uno con el otro.

  12. Yo tuve muy buena experiencia con esta revista. Es cierto que tardan más de seis meses en dar los comentarios de los evaluadores, pero en mi caso los dos evaluadores aceptaron mi artículo con mínimos añadidos.

  13. i recently submitted to this journal (a month ago) and have not yet heard back from the general editor. i sent a brief follow-up email one week after my initial message and still no response (3 weeks later). is this customary for the journal or is there more of a delay because it's the middle of the summer?

  14. it may be a summer delay. they tend to be very professional, though their usual decision time is a bit long (6 months). I have always preferred to send things to places with a quicker turnaround time, though having RCEH in your CV is definitely a boost.

  15. I agree. It took over 9 months to get a rejection. While I did receive feedback the two reviewers contradicted themselves or kept referring to older research on the subject matter--which I was trying to move beyond. Detailed feedback, but not sure if I agreed with it. More importantly the delay was/is unacceptable.

  16. From the two reviewers, I got one acceptance and one rejection. Their comments were really useful and super detailed. In addition, I was able to submit my article for consideration without subscribing.

  17. ¿Alguien ha publicado una reseña? En el sitio de internet dice: “No se publican reseñas no solicitadas.” ¿Eso significa que tú los contactos a ellos para preguntarles si puedes reseñar uno de libros que aparecen en la lista de “libros recibidos,” o significa que sólo se publican reseñas de libros que estén en esa lista?

    1. No, significa que ellos escogen a la persona que quieren que escriba la reseña (normalmente un especialista en el campo), contactan a esa persona, le preguntan si estaría dispuesto a escribir una reseña para ellos y en caso que la persona diga que si, pues le envían una copia del libro.

  18. Muy buena experiencia. Es verdad que tardan bastantes meses en contestar, pero cuando lo hacen ofrecen revisiones tan cuidadosas y detalladas que merece la pena la espera.

  19. This is a selective journal. I understand most articles are rejected but the ones that get published are usually good.

  20. Yo envie un articulo alla por el mes de Abril y todavia no me han dado un veredicto definitivo. Me dijeron que lo harian en Octubre, pero aun estoy a la espera.

  21. por lo general tarden 6 meses, a si que te toca esperar unos días mas
