The University of Toledo Open Journal System site hosts four peer-reviewed academic journals managed by faculty at the University of Toledo, with significant participation from University of Toledo students and researchers from partnering institutions.


  • Cohetes

    Cohetes is a biannual, open-access journal of creative writing in Spanish developed at the Department of World Languages and Cultures, in association with University of Toledo Press. Its main goal is to make public a selection of works written by undergraduate and graduate students, mainly in the short story and literary essay genres, as a result of their learning and practice in the target language and their outstanding achievements as scholars in upper level courses. Both the template of the journal and the contributions are displayed in bilingual format, as a way of reaching a broader audience of readers within and outside UT’s community, and also for their potential pedagogical and intercultural uses.

  • Performance, Religion, and Spirituality

    PRS is an international, bi-annual, peer-reviewed and open-access journal devoted to expanding and deepening discussion about the performed and performative dimensions of religion and spirituality, as well as the religious and spiritual dimensions of performance. The journal promotes rigorous scholarship about the social, cultural, philosophical, and theoretical implications of religion and spirituality as aspects of theatre, the arts, everyday life, politics, language, history, and the sciences. PRS views ‘religion’ and ‘spirituality’ from a global perspective and as inclusive of secular and atheistic currents of thought and practice.
