Basic information

Edited by the Departamento de Lingüística of the Universidad de Chile, Boletín de Filología is mainly devoted to research in Hispanic linguistics and philology, though contributions on new theoretical developments and important methodological innovations in all areas of linguistics are also welcome. In addition to original essays --ranging in length from short research notes up to major reports--, the journal publishes review articles and book reviews. Founded in 1934, Boletín de Filología, the oldest periodical devoted to Hispanic linguistics and philology, has traditionally encouraged publications from abroad, notably from Europe and America. The journal is published biannually (one number each semester) and the principal languages of publication are Spanish, English, French, and Portuguese. Boletín de Filología is a double-blind peer reviewed publication (the referees having to be from outside the Editorial Board). It is essential reading for those interested in linguistic research in Spanish, both Peninsular and American, as well as in theoretical and empirical work in linguistics its widest sense.

The abbreviation of its title is Boletín de Filología, which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes, headings and bibliographical references.
