HAHR Editorial Policy
The Hispanic American Historical Review aims to provide an organ for the publication of historical materials relating to Hispanic America, which is taken to mean those Western Hemisphere countries formerly colonized by Spain, Portugal, and France, as well as the Philippines.
The journal receives far more manuscripts than it can possibly publish or send out for review.* Thus articles that appear in HAHR should not merely be publishable; they should contribute significantly to scholarship in what is our field’s journal of record. We consider the following when determining whether or not an article meets these criteria.
