The Bulletin for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies is the official peer-reviewed journal of the Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies. 

BSPHS embraces a cross-disciplinary approach. We accept works of historical content and/or historical relevance belonging to disciplines outside the field of History such as Literary Studies, Historical Sociology, Historical Anthropology, Art History, etcetera. The main contents of the BSPHS are scholarly individual or coauthored articles, topical forum conversations, and book reviews. To experiment with the possibilities of digital academic publishing, we are also partnering with the Historias podcast ( to publish audio interviews with authors featured in the journal, and piloting a resource sharing initiative through Zotero ( where authors can publish curated collections of print and web resources.
