The Latin American Research Review (LARR) is an interdisciplinary journal that publishes original research and surveys of current research on Latin America and the Caribbean.
LARR was founded in 1965 by a consortium of U.S. universities. When the Latin American Studies Association (LASA) was established the following year, LARR and LASA merged, with the journal becoming the association's official scholarly journal. Starting at University of Texas at Austin in 1965, the editorship moved to the University of North Carolina in 1974, and then to the University of New Mexico in 1982 before returning to the University of Texas at Austin in 2003. In 2006 Dr. Philip Oxhorn at McGill University was awarded the editorship. Professor Philip Oxhorn’s role as LARR editor in chief will end in December 2016. Professor Aníbal Pérez-Liñán at the University of Pittsburgh has been named as the new editor in chief. To ensure a smooth transition, all new manuscripts submitted in 2016 will be reviewed by the new editorial team.
LARR is beginning a transition to electronic-only publication and will cease print publication at a future date to be announced. Authors should expect their manuscripts submitted after October 15, 2014, if accepted for publication, to appear in electronic form only and not in a printed volume.
