  1. I have a forthcoming article in a special issue of Letras femeninas (Spring/Summer 2010). I had a pleasant experience publishing here. The turn around time was very quick. Since I was submitting for a special issue, I submitted an abstract and was told within a month whether it had been accepted. I was given from May to October to write the article (more than enough time). I received comments from three readers in November and made changes to submit in late December. The process was very professional, yet cordial and helpful. Letras femeninas is a top-tier journal in hispanic studies and is the premier feminine letters journal in the hispanic world. My professors have been very impressed that I was able to place a paper in that journal and suggest that it is nearly as significant as a paper in Revista Iberoamericana, Revista Hispánica Moderna, or the Hispanic Review. Personally, the only slightly disappointing experience publishing with this journal is that I thought the reader's comments could've been more critical. I liked my article, but thought that there may have been some areas that needed improvement. Nonetheless, I strongly encourage fellow hispanists to publish in this journal as it is both a top-tier journal and an enjoyable publication experience.

  2. This journal reviewed my article very quickly. They only took two months. Although my article was rejected, the reviewer provided respectful and honest feedback. Much like the person above, I think that the comments could have been more critical. Despite my rejection, I would submit to this journal again. I have much respect for it.

  3. While I initially got comments back quickly, and revised to resubmit, the second review took a LONG time and then it was 3 years before the article was in print!

  4. Muy buena experiencia. Rápidos, eficientes... Incluso las correcciones. Un placer trabajar con ellos. Es una lástima que no todos sean así...

  5. Any recent info about review time, specifically for general submissions, not for special issues. Many thanks.
