Bulletin Marcel Proust
Since 1950, the Bulletin Marcel Proust has been the yearly publication of the Société des Amis de Marcel Proust et des Amis de Combray, a French organization devoted to the study of Marcel Proust and his works. It contains letters, documents, articles, book reviews, and a bibliography.
Revista de Estudios Hispánicos
The department is the home to the Revista de Estudios Hispánicos, an internationally recognized, peer-reviewed journal that publishes original manuscripts in all areas of Hispanic literatures, cultures, and film, including essays on theoretical and interdisciplinary topics. The Revista de Estudios Hispánicos has received a grade of A+ from the Australian Research Council ranking of research journals.
According to the ERA 2010 Ranked Journal List definition, an A+ journal would typically be one of the best in its field or subfield in which to publish and would typically cover the entire field/subfield. Virtually all papers they publish will be of a very high quality. These are journals where most of the work is important (it will really shape the field) and where researchers boast about getting accepted. Acceptance rates would typically be low and the editorial board would be dominated by field leaders, including many from top institutions.
