Mélanges de la Casa de Velázquez. Nouvelle série (MCV)

MCV is a half-yearly journal of human and social sciences and literature, consisting of a thematic Dossier and a Miscellanées section. A section Actualité de la recherche is published online when the issue comes out, offering articles of historical research, opinions on current scientific debates, cross-readings and reviews of recently-published work. These last are published online only (mcv.revues.org).

Referencing 

In compliance with the formal requirements of European rating agencies, the journal is recognised by the CNRS for its "undeniable scientific quality", qualifying it as a "journal of reference" (National Committee evaluation, autumn 2013 session). Again, the Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología classifies Mélanges de la Casa de Velázquez as a "Journal of Excellence" (certificate FECYT-060/2011), renewed in 2016, which distinguishes the best Spanish scientific journals.

The journal is referenced in the principal international data bases, and its articles, among others, are summarised and indexed in Latindex® (catalogue), Arts and Humanities Citation Index® and SCOPUS®. It is classified in category A by Difusión y Calidad Editorial de las Revistas Españolas de Humanidades y Ciencias Sociales (DICE) and is approved by the European Reference Index for the Humanities (ERIH PLUS).
