The Cincinnati Romance Review is a peer-reviewed electronic journal published by the Department of Romance and Arabic Languages and Literatures of the University of Cincinnati. The journal was founded in 1981-82 and has been published electronically since 2008.

The Cincinnati Romance Review is now moving to a new website! Please visit us at our new location:

We invite original submissions and reviews on any subject related to  Romance languages, literatures, and cultures. Submissions may be written in French, Italian, Spanish, or Portuguese.

Volume 46 was published in the spring of 2019. We are now accepting book reviews for the next issue (volume 47, a special issue, to be published in late 2019) and articles and book reviews for the next regular issue (volume 48, to be published in the spring of 2020).

To our readers and contributors:

It has recently come to the attention of the Cincinnati Romance Review that a number of articles published in our open-access journal have been illegally republished (with slightly altered titles and wording, and under the names of new, falsely credited "authors") on a fraudulent website purporting to be the Latin American Indian Literatures Journal, a real journal that is still being published in print and on a legitimate website ( The fraudulent journal's website impersonating the LAILJ is using the name of the editor of the legitimate journal, but the articles included in their "current issue" and archives have been plagiarized from various academic journals, including the Cincinnati Romance Review. Our attempts to trace the company hosting the fraudulent website or to have it shut down have been unsuccessful so far. The University of Cincinnati has issued a "cease-and-desist" letter to the site, although the results of this are uncertain.

Given our inability to shut the fraudulent site down, we can thus do no more than alert our colleagues to the fact that the publication of any articles published by the Cincinnati Romance Review elsewhere or under a different author's name is illegal. CRR is the original and legitimate place of publication of such articles. We advise our readers to beware of fraudulent internet journals, and to exercise caution when accessing or downloading files from unverified sites, as these websites may be phishing or malware schemes masquerading as academic journals.
