In its mission statement, the UNISA Centre for Latin America clarifies that the purpose of the journal UNISA Latin American Report is "a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal of research and commentary relating to Latin. Its purpose is to promote scholarly understanding of, and general information about, that Continent. It features research articles, commentary, interviews, news and information, reports and book reviews". This mission statement has over the years been met, by and large. However, there has been a temporary suspension to the publication of this journal. In 2010 UNISA Press directorate requested that publication of this journal be resumed so that both the Press and the university should continue to benefit from potential subsidies from the South African Department of Higher Education. In order to revive the journal, this first issue (published in 2010) sought articles from African scholars reflecting on the arts, literature, music and education of Africa and Latin America.
