Estudios Irlandeses , the scholarly journal of the Spanish Association for Irish Studies (AEDEI) is a peer-reviewed, open access electronic periodical published once a year, in March. It is aimed at an academic audience and the interested general reader. It seeks to become an international forum for original research in the field of Irish Studies in an easily accessible electronic format. All contributions may be read online (HTML format) and may also be printed (PDF format). For readers wishing to collect the print-outs of Estudios Irlandeses , printable front covers of each issue are also provided. In March 2005 the journal made a most auspicious start with a special inaugural Zero Issue containing fifteen essays which set a high standard of scholarship, and which received some 3,000 visits. Since then, the journal has published a wide range of original work by established and by emerging academic figures. Apart from essays, interviews and literary translations, each issue includes a round-up of all Irish-themed books produced in Spain during the previous year, a comprehensive year in review of Irish cinema, and selected reviews of Irish-themed books produced during the previous year.
We invite people doing research in the broad discipline of Irish Studies to submit their work for the forthcoming issues.
