(Sept. 10, 2014) -- The UTSA College of Education and Human Development recently acquired the ownership of the Bilingual Review from Arizona State University’s Hispanic Research Center. The journal will be housed in the UTSA Department of Bicultural-Bilingual Studies (BBL) under the editorial direction of Howard Smith, associate professor.
Dean Betty Merchant, BBL Department Chair Belinda Flores, and Smith accepted ownership of the journal on behalf of the university.
Currently in its 40th year of publication, the Bilingual Review is a scholarly journal that publishes research, articles and reviews in the areas of bilingual education, bilingualism and ethnic scholarship. The addition of the journal to the Department of Bicultural-Bilingual Studies is an accomplishment of which Flores is very proud.
“We are honored in BBL to have been selected to assume responsibility of the Bilingual Review,” said Flores. “It demonstrates the continued leadership and expertise that the department has in the fields of bilingualism, biliteracy and culture.”
Housing the journal, Smith said, will also provide a top-tier opportunity for the department’s junior faculty and doctoral students to develop knowledge and skills about the publication and editorial processes.
“As editor, I will be actively recruiting colleagues from within the department and the college for membership on the editorial board, on the review board, for book reviews, and for co-editorship on themes issues which correspond to their abundant expertise,” said Smith. “As the university moves toward Tier One status, it is availing itself of opportunities to increase its national and international profile within the academic community.”
