Latin American Research Review (LARR)

Aims and Scope

The Latin American Research Review aims to

  • publish research findings relating to Latin America that will be of interest to a multidisciplinary audience and accessible to a general academic readership;
  • give preference to work that draws attention to the broader implications of research for theory and method;
  • invite original research based on rigorous analysis of public policy outcomes, particularly where policy evaluation is framed within the wider theoretical and practical implications for Latin American societies;
  • take the lead in encouraging new research and ways of thinking that challenge mainstream theory and empirical work;
  • provide a breadth of disciplinary and country representation within every issue;
  • publish thematic book review essays commissioned from specialists in the field;
  • offer occasional research reports and notes to provide an outlet for brief commentaries on methods, archives, or new research material or data that will assist or stimulate further research in a specific field;
  • periodically publish thematic special issues that examine timely topics in Latin American research from multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary perspectives.
