Textos e Pretextos is an annual, peer-reviewed inter-arts journal that is published by the Centre for Comparative Studies at the School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Lisbon. Its main purpose is to disseminate and stimulate reflection on the work of living Portuguese-language authors and interdisciplinary themes that promote the relationship between literature and other arts. Each issue of T&P includes a wide range of articles featuring topics of immediate interest to an intellectual readership worldwide. The journal aims to stimulate and develop thoughtful debate by welcoming contributions especially from post-graduate students and distinguished writers in academic and professional life.

​​T&P is grounded in serious scientific research and dedicates its uneven issues to living Portuguese-language writers and even issues to themes that put different arts in dialogue, thus promoting the encounter between distinct artistic languages. A call for articles is open per issue.

​​​​T&P targets two kinds of audiences:
– One made up of secondary and higher education level students, teachers, researchers, and early-career practitioners in the artistic areas addressed by the journal (visual arts, theatre, dance, cinema, literature, music);
– And a more urban-oriented audience primarily made up of people formally or informally connected to arts and culture and with acute critical judgment (journalists, musicians, visual artists, actors, art consumers, among others).

Peer-review process
The journal uses double-blind peer review. Articles are submitted in Word format at textosepretextos@gmail.com, and acknowledgment of receipt of submission is sent within 1 to 2 weeks. To ensure authors’ anonymity, the journal’s editorial team is responsible for removing all personal information from the file(s) before sending the article to the peer reviewers.
Following good practices of scholarship, all articles must be original research that do not duplicate previously published work and that are not under review by another journal. When selecting reviewers, the journal’s editorial team makes sure to avoid conflict of interest and that reviewers are independent of the authors (i.e. not affiliated with the same institution). The peer-review process usually takes between 2 to 3 months.

Authors must take full responsibility for the originality of the work submitted and for appropriately quoting any work of others used in the text.
