In this talk I will first introduce classical and quantum long-range Ising models and their field theory counterparts. I will show that in particular regimes these systems can be described with simple free non-local field theories with dispersion relation $\omega(k)=|k|^{\alpha/2}$.

Having this motivation in mind, I will first study many quantum aspects of free non-local field theories such as: the entanglement entropy, dynamics of local operators and entanglement entropy after quantum quenches. Then in particular cases I will also present some results regarding interacting field theories.
