Voices Magazine a e-magazine from The Center for Puerto Rican Studies.


Participating in Voices

Becoming a Centro Voices editor is easy. Just send an e-mail indicating your interest. You can submit a proposal for a new section on a topic of your interest (i.e, health issues among Puerto Ricans, Puerto Rican women, Puerto Rican art in the US, Puerto Ricans in cinema and/or the media, Puerto Rican pioneros and their legacy, etc.) or join an existing group. All faculty affiliated with a Puerto Rican or Latino studies programs, or any Puerto Rican-studies scholar, can serve as an editor of a section. Other professionals in the field of Puerto Rican studies can also partner with scholars and become co-editors and contributors to sections.

Editors are responsible for all content development and for the review of material submitted by members and other contributors. We expect editors to become regular contributors to the magazine.

We encourage faculty, students, teachers, professionals, artists, and all community members to volunteer and to participate as members of the groups that oversee sections of the magazine. If you are interested in contributing to a section send us an email to: When submiting proposals and/or materials consider the following:

Centro staff will be responsible for technical support and page design.

All content must not endorse or advance a particular political party, candidate or view, and is subject to CUNY guidelines and regulations.

Copyrights for any materials remains with the authors, with a copyright permit for Voices as an educational magazine granted to Centro by the authors. Exceptions to this arrangement are work products, that is, any content paid for by Centro and by extension by New York tax payers. In these situations, Centro is devoted to the support of scholarship and any academic product resulting from that work will remain with the authors. In some cases, like when you publish in CENTRO Journal, publishing rights are transfer to the journal, but that is your decision if you choose to publish with the journal.

Researchers conduct oral histories all the time and are subject to the Internal Review Board regulations of their home institution. As long as you are affiliated to Centro, you have to follow Hunter College and CUNY regulations.
