Hispanic Studies PhD Requirements

5. Publications

Publication is an important component of academic life. As a requirement of our Ph.D. program, students are encouraged and supported to develop and apply this essential professional skill. In order to complete this requirement, students must publish at least one, single-authored research article or make a significant contribution on a multi-authored research article in a peer-reviewed venue. Please consult with your supervisor on appropriate publication venues. [Entrehojas, the Hispanic Studies graduate student journal will not count towards this requirement.] Collaborators on a multi-authored research article may be asked to provide percentages that indicate individual contributions to the publication. Acceptance of completion of this requirement is up to the discretion of the Graduate Chair + Committee in consultation with the student’s supervisor.

Please note that in cases where the timing of the peer-review process is unduly protracted and waiting for a decision might delay the student's completion of the program, the Graduate Committee may rely on the advice of an expert in the student's field (someone other than the Supervisor) to evaluate the “publishable quality” of a submitted article.

Students are highly encouraged to plan and write their coursework essays with an eye to future publication. A useful resource for revising a classroom essay into a publication manuscript, and for looking for suitable venues for publication is Writing Your Journal Article in 12 Weeks: A Guide to Academic Publishing Success by Wendy Laura Belcher.
