About Spanish Academic

Spanish Academic connects people involved in Spanish academic research and teaching. Members of Spanish Academic are post-secondary educators, graduate students, and independent scholars.

The Face of the Spanish Academic for 2014 - 2015

We are currently identifying potential members within the United States and inviting these individuals to join. Members are categorized as educators (post-secondary), graduate students, or independent scholars. Since it is impossible ferret out every single qualified potential member, we invite current members to suggest new members from the U.S. or abroad. We also have an open application process available to scholars who stumble on the site; however, every potential member will be formally invited to join.

Building the Network

The primary goals of Spanish Academic are to: (1) provide readers and researchers content relevant to Hispanic Linguistics and Spanish and Spanish American Literatures and Cultures, (2) give researcers and scholars a wider reading audience, (3) promote Spanish academic research and teaching, and (4) help potential graduate students find a graduate program that fits their interests and preferences.

FAQ

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:

  • Who makes the decisions on memberships? Memberships are usually reviewed by one or more volunteers who simply verify the submitted information before giving the okay.
  • What criteria are used for memberships? Educators and graduate students are verified by a combination of Internet research and phone calls. Independent scholars are looked at a little more carefully, but they are not excluded just because they are not affiliated with a college or university.
  • May I join if I am not a post-secondary educator, graduate student, or independent scholar? Yes. We offer the membership category of "reader". A "reader" may be an undergraduate student, a high school teacher, a translator, or an associate member who supports the network's goals. In some cases, readers have restricted access to documents that are secured at the request of individual authors. Readers do not have individual profiles.
  • Who gets to publish on the website? All members may publish. There are three open forums: Educator, Graduate, Independent. Post-secondary educators may publish in all three forums; Graduate students may publish in the Graduate forum, and independent scholars may publish in the Independent forum.
  • Are articles peer-reviewed? Articles in the "Open Forum" are read for relevance to the website, and to ensure that they are final drafts. Articles for the Spanish Academic Journal are peer-reviewed.
