INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
Revista Chilena de Literatura was founded in 1970. It is sponsored by the rectorship of the Universidad de Chile and it is affiliated with the Facultad de Filosofía y Humanidades. It is a biannual publication that welcomes writings in Spanish that have not been previously published. Revista Chilena de Literatura addresses a whole range of topics since it includes studies of writers, literary works and similar issues from the present and the past, from Chile as well as from foreign countries from a literary perspective. The journal is organized into four sections: 1. Studies: literary scientific articles that promote the development of knowledge of the specific topic discussed. 2. Notes: usually briefer than articles and without the usual scientific organization present in scientific studies. However, they should be internally consistent and appropriately founded. 3. Documents about different authors and their works, such as interviews, new translations and unpublished writings that may allow a better understanding of these authors’ works. 4. Reviews of recently published works.
The journal has an editorial staff that can either accept or reject the submitted manuscripts as well as correcting minor formal errors.
