About the Journal

Since 1998 the Journal of Catalan Studies has been the only academic journal dedicated entirely to the promotion of Catalan Language and Culture via a totally electronic mode of publication. The Journal reflects its commitment to all areas of Catalan Studies with a wide range of articles divided across the following major themes: Literatures and Cultures; Performing and Visual Arts; Languages and Society; Translation and Bibliography; and History and Politics.

Contributors are eagerly invited to submit their work for consideration by two expert reviewers as part of a double blind peer review process. The Journal is committed to a timely turnaround of decisions and publication of articles, which pass the review phase. Articles submitted will continue to be welcome in any language although the preferred media of the review are Catalan and English.
