Welcome to the Portuguese Studies Review

Academic Mission
The PSR is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to promoting interdisciplinary scholarly study of the countries, regions, and communities that share, build on, or are transforming a Portuguese or Brazilian legacy. The PSR promotes a critical understanding of the historical and current evolution of political, economic, social and cultural networks incorporating Portugal, Brazil, and the various global or regional actors affected by Luso-Brazilian exploration, colonization, emigration, policy trends, trade agreements, and other linkages.

 

Scope of Coverage
The PSR's scope extends to all relevant parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Contributions are invited from all disciplines. Particularly welcome are the fields of history, geography, economics, political science, international relations, sociology, policy studies, anthropology, ethnography and folklore, archaeology, cultural studies, and cultural and natural heritage conservation. The PSR also accommodates related discussions of methodology, critical theory, and metatheory. The Review is committed to methodological pluralism. We accept papers combining pure and applied research. All articles are expected to be accessible to readers from diverse backgrounds.

 

PSR Background Story
The Review began publication in 1991, at the University of New Hampshire, under the editorship of Prof. Douglas Wheeler and within the framework of the International Conference Group on Portugal (ICGP). It represented a continuation, on a more formal footing, of the Portuguese Studies Newsletter, published since 1976.

In 2002, when Prof. Wheeler relinquished his editorship upon his retirement, the PSR became an independent journal and was moved from the University of New Hampshire (Durham) to a temporary base of convenience at Trent University (Peterborough, Ontario).

The PSR has been produced (designed, proofed, typeset) under its own auspices since 2002, using commercial facilities in Peterborough (Ontario) for printing and binding. The current Chief Editor is a tenured faculty member at Trent University. The production and editorial framework is modular, flexible, and mobile, and is not limited to Trent University in any way or fashion. The International Editorial Board is drawn from academic institutions around the world.

In 2012, the PSR has become partnered with a small independent-label academic publisher, and is now an imprint of Baywolf Press. Trent University, the PSR's academic facilitator, continues to provide an editorial office (a pro-forma mailing address), mirror website space, and partial payments handling support (our main online payments engine is PayPal). Academic awareness maintenance, submissions management, peer-review process management, design, digital production, printing, binding, e-pub management and development, promotional campaigns, website maintenance and development, and international shipping are all handled by the PSR/Baywolf Press.

PSR contents are abstracted, indexed, and tracked by Gale/CENGAGE and EBSCO Academic Host. We are renegotiating our affiliation with ProQuest. We are still in the queue for JSTOR (long wait). We provide added exposure for our authors by ensuring that all recent and current issues are available for preview on Google Books. Please note that various ranking services such as SJR SCImago continue to provide severely outdated parameters for our journal, despite sustained attempts on our part to have such parameters corrected and despite the public availablity of correct parameters at Google and at all major search engines. Note that: (a) the Portuguese Studies Review is not published by the International Conference Group on Portugal (a long-defunct organization); (b) that the Portuguese Studies Review is not published in the US. These parameters have been incorrect since 2002.

 

Access and Distribution
Look for us at Gale/CENGAGE and EBSCOhost e-resource and database centers in your subscribing library (our abstracts will also be restreamed at ProQuest). Soon on JSTOR. Ask your library to subscribe. Or subscribe in person. Previews of the PSR are available through Google Books (program now discontinued and being replaced by forthcoming previews on our own site).
