This journal explores the local, national, transnational, and hemispheric realities that influence the Latina and Latino presence in the United States. Latino Studies presents an international research agenda that builds bridges between the academic and non-academic worlds, and promotes mutual learning and collaboration among all the Latino national groups.
In addition to full-length original research articles from scholars and practitioners, Latino Studies publishes shorter ‘Reports from the Field’ that describe and analyze significant local issues, struggles and debates affecting the lives of Latinas and Latinos.
Latino Studies is a Transformative Journal; authors can publish using the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access.

COVID 19 and impact on peer review
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
The journal also offers many book and media reviews, which focus the view of scholarship on the experience of Latinas and Latinos in the United States. Another important feature of the journal is the páginas recuperadas section. These 'recovered pages' cast a scholarly spotlight on historically significant achievements by individuals, and pivotal events in Latino and Latina culture in the United States.
Latino Studies brings a blend of scholarly rigor and human dignity to the experience and struggles of Latinas and Latinos for equality, representation, and social justice.
