FORTHCOMING IN 2024

In 2024, individuals will become eligible for a limited promotional period of free access to the Journal of Femininities. Please be sure to revisit this page to take advantage of this offer.

The Journal of Femininities is the first academic journal devoted to the study of Femininities and uniquely offers an outlet for scholarship on femininity. The Journal of Femininities cultivates and unifies the field of Femininities by publishing content that advances theories and methods in the study of femininity. The journal seeks to challenge and re-examine the taken-for-granted norms and associations of femininity and to treat Femininities as an academic discipline similar to others that focus on particular social dimensions. Articles that appear in the Journal of Femininities contribute to deeper and more complex understandings of femininity.

The Journal of Femininities publishes cutting-edge research focused on femininity. It is a peer-reviewed international journal that publishes high-quality research from a variety of disciplines (e.g., sociology, psychology, gender studies, business, public health, education, political science, media studies, legal studies, family science, etc.) and is particularly supportive of interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transdisciplinary work from feminist perspectives. The journal welcomes submissions of methodologically rigorous empirical articles, both qualitative and quantitative, as well as critical essays, theoretical papers, and book reviews. Articles published in the Journal of Femininities employ diverse methodologies to explore perceptions and constructions of femininity or to deliberately examine femininity as a framework or intersectional axis. The Journal of Femininities encourages submissions that examine femininity across intersectional axes of race, sexuality, disability, class, body size, religion, culture, or gender/sex. Please contact either editor to discuss opportunities to guest-edit a special issue or special feature.

The Journal of Femininities understands “femininity” as an often overlapping but separate construct from “woman” or “female” and thus does not treat women and femininity synonymously.

The journal will welcome the following types of submissions (in APA format). For all empirical research, the Editors-in-Chief encourage uploading a supplementary file with a more detailed methods section. Reference lists are not included in the word counts.

Religion and Gender is the first peer-reviewed, international journal for the systematic study of gender and religion in an interdisciplinary perspective. The journal explores the relation, confrontation and intersection of gender and religion, taking into account the multiple and changing manifestations of religion in diverse social and cultural contexts. It analyses and reflects critically on gender in its interpretative and imaginative dimensions and as a fundamental principle of social ordering. It seeks to investigate gender at the intersections of feminist, sexuality, queer, masculinity, and diversity studies. Religion and Gender targets an interdisciplinary academic audience but also aims to be accessible to those with a non-professional interest in the field. The journal publishes high level contributions from the Humanities and from qualitative and conceptual studies in the Social Sciences. It focusses in particular on contemporary debates and topics of emerging interest from postmodern, postcolonial, and post-secular perspectives.

Editor-in-Chief:
Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary journal dedicated to advancing scholarship on themes relevant to Simone de Beauvoir’s legacy, such as gender and sexuality, race and culture, feminism, existentialism, literature, and political activism. Founded in 1983, SdBS publishes creative, journalistic, autobiographical, and experimental writing in addition to research, scholarly articles, and book reviews. Submissions need not mention Beauvoir or her oeuvre directly, as long as they demonstrate clear connections to her legacy in content and/or style. Texts are published in English and French.

La revue Simone de Beauvoir Studies (SdBS) est une publication multidisciplinaire arbitrée par des pairs. Elle se consacre à la recherche traitant de thématiques en lien avec l’héritage de Simone de Beauvoir, telles que les études sur le genre (gender studies), la sexualité, le féminisme, les rapports interculturels, le postcolonialisme, le militantisme politique, l’existentialisme et la littérature. Fondée en 1983, la revue édite des textes autobiographiques, créatifs, essayistiques et journalistiques en plus d’études scientifiques et de recensions critiques. Les textes soumis ne doivent pas nécessairement mentionner Beauvoir et son œuvre, en autant qu’ils comportent des liens clairs avec son héritage en ce qui touche le contenu et/ou le style. Les textes sont publiés en anglais et en français.

Simone de Beauvoir Studies was awarded the Phoenix Award by the Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ) in 2020.

The Editorial Committee is pleased to announce the annual Patterson Prize competition and the Featured Translation award. For details, please see the "About" and "Downloads" tab below.
