Do you know JOLLAS? The Journal of Latino / Latin American Studies, co-edited by Dr. Jonathan Santo and Dr. Ramón Guerra at the University of Nebraska-Omaha, is an interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal, focused on, you guessed it, issues related to the Latino experience in the U.S. and throughout Latin America. Each issue is centered on a theme, creating a diversity of scholarship across multiple topics and and areas of study. You can read about everything from Feminist Chicana research methodology, to self-esteem in Latino adolescents, to socio-emotional development in Latin America.
Access to JOLLAS is available through the SocIndex with Full Text database, from 2003 to the most current issue (Sept. 2015).
