Who Can Submit

Any scholar, artist, journalist or graduate student is welcome to submit materials in the following formats specified below. There will be a biannual call for materials in the fall and spring quarters to produce two rEvista issues a year: Fall and Spring.

rEvista will publish digitally following materials:

  • Academic working papers
  • Short videos (3-5 minutes)
  • Creative writing (e.g., poetry, short stories, chapters of novels)
  • Theoretical essays
  • Articles based on empirically based research
  • Opinion pieces on contemporary issues
  • Visual arts (photo essays, interactive applications)
  • Sonic pieces (e.g., Podcasts)

rEvista: A Multi-media, Multi-genre e-Journal for Social Justice only publishes materials related to the Chicano Studies Institute. The editors reserve the right to determine the suitability of submissions. For additional information, please contact


Once posted to a repository, a paper cannot generally be revised or removed. We feel it is important to provide perpetual access to materials published within eScholarship whenever possible and appropriate. However, we will remove publications under special circumstances, including in the case of submission errors, rights violations, or inappropriate content. Please be aware, however, that even after the removal of a text, a citation to the paper will remain in our system, along with a URL.

If you would like your work removed from eScholarship, please contact the administrator:

Revising Work

Once published, we are generally unable to revise manuscripts. If a significant error or omission is discovered, contact the administrator:

Author Review

Authors are asked to review PDFs created from their papers within 5 days of being sent the PDF. At this stage, we're unable to make any changes beyond the rare error that occurs in PDF conversion.

Rights and Permissions

Before submitting a paper to the repository, please be sure that all necessary permissions have been cleared. You retain the copyright to your paper and grant us the nonexclusive right to publish this material, meaning that you may also publish it elsewhere. All articles published in the journal are subject to the journal’s author agreement, which is available in the first step of the submission process or by contacting us to request a copy.
