IJIS is interested in submissions looking at:
history (20th century onwards), and politics; foreign policy and international relations, including with the European Union; labour and social movements; social and welfare policies; economics and business management; work and employment; spatial, urban and regional developments; regional nationalism and ethnic identities; feminist thought and gender policies; education and cultural debates; media, television, cinema and advertising policies; tourism, leisure and sports policies and management; and language policy and learning issues.

Research articles for peer review should be innovative with respect to the knowledge base on contemporary Spanish and Portuguese affairs, and be grounded in the relevant literature.

We also welcome suggestions for themed issues. Prospective guest-editors are welcome to approach the joint editors, Dr Georgina Blakeley ( or Dr Fernando León-Solís ( with a proposal for a themed issue
