General information

Revista Chilena de Literatura, founded in 1970, it is sponsored by the Vice-chancellor’s Office of the Universidad de Chile and is affiliated with the Facultad de Filosofía y Humanidades. This journal appears regularly, in May and November each year. It welcomes writings in Spanish, previously unpublished. Revista Chilena de Literatura addresses a whole range of topics: it includes studies of writers, literary works and similar issues from the present and the past, from Chile as well as from foreign countries. The journal is organized into four sections:

1) Articles: scientific studies about literature 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, but internally consistent and appropriately founded.

3) Documents: texts about authors and their works, such as interviews, new translations and unpublished writings that may facilitate or stimulate a better understanding of these authors’ works.

4) Reviews: bibliographic texts about recently published works. The reviews deal with literary works and books or journals specialized in topics related to literature.

5) Dossier: it gathers between four and ten studies under a common theme. Each dossier is coordinated by an academic specialist in the subject. The contributions to the dossier, like the rest of the studies published by our journal, are submitted to the process of double-blind peer review.

Revista Chilena de Literatura has biannual frecuency.

The abbreviation of the journal is Rev. chil. lit., and it must be used in bibliographies, notes, legends and bibliographic references.
