PITTSBURGH—New research on the history and culture of Bolivia is being solicited for the Bolivian Studies Journal/Revista de Estudios Bolivianos—an e-journal published by the University of Pittsburgh’s University Library System (ULS), a national leader in Open Access digital publishing.

The Bolivian Studies Journal (http://bsj.pitt.edu) is an international, peer-reviewed journal, published by the ULS with the support of the University’s Center for Latin American Studies and Department of Hispanic Languages and Literature and edited by Elizabeth Monasterios and Martha E. Mantilla. The journal’s editorial board comprises well-known scholars, intellectuals, and writers working in Bolivia, the United States, and Europe. It publishes once a year and accepts material in Spanish, English, or indigenous languages.

Editors are seeking innovative interdisciplinary research that critically discusses Bolivia’s challenges in the new millennium. The journal is especially interested in disseminating research produced in Bolivia to a worldwide audience. It welcomes articles, case studies, discussions and interviews in a wide range of areas, including Andean studies, Amazonian studies, history, law, philosophy, visual arts, and many others.
