Propuestas de monográficos
Proposals for monographs

Historia Agraria accepts proposals for the publication of monographs. The criteria for the review of these proposals will be based mainly on their thematic interest and their high scientific quality (innovative approach, relevant subject matter, controversial or topical in academic discussions, new methodological approaches…) and the merit and quality of the authors involved. Although this is not a strictly mandatory requirement, out of choice Historia Agraria would prefer these monographic issues to be published entirely in English. The review process for the manuscripts will follow the journal’s normal procedures.
