Basic Information

ALPHA, is a biannual journal, founded in 1985 by faculty members of the Department of Humanities and Arts, at the Vocational Institute of Osorno, today University of Los Lagos (Osorno, Chile).

It is an interdisciplinary proposal that has concentrated in its pages the interests in arts, literatures and philosophy, with the common goal of constituting an academic space for the dissemination of research on literary studies and the humanities in general.

This project provides the academic community with a mainstream publication to publicize the results of research and proposals, from a theoretical-methodological perspective, related to the studies of the humanities, the arts and textual and cultural meanings.

Its target audience is researchers, research groups, faculty and students from Chile and other countries.

ALPHA has a printed version that responds to its tradition and history and a digital version.

As of the publication of N° 22 (July 2006), it has been indexed in SciELO (Scientific Electronic Library on line) and later with issue No. 24 (July 2007) it was included in Thomson Scientific's Art and Humanities Index Citation and incorporated in Web of Science.
