Aztlan: A Journal of Chicano Studies welcomes original submissions in the social sciences, the humanities, and the arts. Submissions should speak clearly to their significance within a particular scholarly debate as well as to their more general relevance to Chicano studies and other fields. Detailed information about submissions may be found online at

Please direct all submissions and inquires to [email protected]

Aztlán publishes three types of articles: essays, dossiers, and reviews.
Essays are substantive, scholarly, original contributions to the field. Essays are research-based and tend to be formal and centered on a single significant idea that relates to current debates. Essay interviews of leading figures must address a scholarly topic, not the figure’s life history. Submissions should advance research in the field of Chicano studies.
Dossiers are journalistic pieces or personal views on timely topics.
Reviews are shorter pieces on books, movies, recordings, events, conferences, exhibitions, and so on. Book reviews are generally of scholarly publications, but reviews of fiction and poetry with wide cultural impact may also be considered. Inquiries about reviews should be directed to [email protected]
Aztlán also accepts letters to the editor.

All authors whose work is accepted for publication are required to sign an author agreement.
