Estudios Irlandeses is a peer-reviewed, open access electronic journal published twice a year, in March (regular issue) and in October (special issue). Each regular issue covers the previous 12 month period (April-March). Estudios Irlandeses is independently funded; it does not receive financial aid from any official institution or government organization.
It is aimed at an academic audience and the interested general reader, and only publishes contributions that are the result of personal research, and have not been previously published. All contributions are subject to a blind double peer review process.
Estudios Irlandeses seeks to become an international forum for original research in the field of Irish Studies in an easily accessible electronic format. All contributions may be read online. Moreover, a version in Portable Document Format, with numbered, two-column printings, can be obtained by clicking on the PDF icon. For readers wishing to collect the print-outs , printable front covers of each issue are also provided.
For its inaugural number – Issue 0 – published in March 2005, the journal sought contributions from fifteen renowned scholars working in various areas of Irish Studies in different countries.
As from Issue Nº 1, Estudios Irlandeses publishes essays, in either English or Spanish, which engage in a critical and original way with aspects of Irish literature, history, arts and the media.
