Manuscript Submission Guidelines:
We welcome manuscripts in a variety of formats, including work that introduces innovative forms of feminist psychology scholarship. In addition to full length Articles, Observations and Commentaries, and Brief Reports, we publish Book Reviews, and welcome submissions for Special Features. Queries about the latter should be directed to the Editors; submission guidelines for the others follow. If you are uncertain about the relevance of your manuscript for the journal, please contact the Editors.
Articles, Observations & Commentaries, Brief Reports
Submissions of full length Articles, Brief Reports, and Observations and Commentaries should be submitted via SAGE Track, the journal's online manuscript submission system, at the following URL: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/fap
Authors should consult the Aims and Scope before submitting a manuscript for review, and are also advised to consult the Editorial in volume 18(1) if more detail is required. Authors should also take note of the following:
1. Manuscripts must be written in English, and can not have been published, nor be currently under consideration, elsewhere. Manuscripts need to be at least 70% different to other previously published work.
2. The following word lengths apply and include references and any supplementary material: up to 8000 words for full-length articles (please contact the editors if you want to submit a substantially longer manuscript); 500-2000 words for Observations and Commentaries; up to 3000 words for Brief Reports. Please provide a word count.
3. All submissions fitting within the Aims and Scope will be peer reviewed anonymously.
4. Submissions should be prepared for anonymous peer review. This means that any identifiable author details (such as reference to previous works as part of the same project) need to be removed or anonymised (e.g., Author 1, 2007), and all author details should be sent as a separate cover-sheet document.
5. Submissions should be prepared in accordance with the following style. They should be double-spaced throughout, with generous margins, and not right-justified. References should be Harvard system, and in the following style:
Caplan PJ (1989) Don't Blame Mother. New York: Harper & Row, 00-00.
Woolsey LK and McBain L (1987) Issues of Power and Powerlessness in All-woman Groups. Women's Studies International Forum 10(2): 579-88.
Griffith AI and Smith DE (1987) Constructing Cultural Knowledge: Mothering as Discourse. In: Gaskell J and McLaren A (eds) Women and Education. Calgary: Detselig Press, 27-44.
6. Footnotes should be kept to a minimum, and presented as End Notes.
7. All figures should be of a reproducible standard.
8. Extracts of qualitative data containing transcription notation should be prepared in the exact format you wish them to appear, especially as regards punctuation, spacing, underlining, etc. Each line should contain no more than 80 characters in 10pt including numbering and the speaker's name.
9. Authors should avoid the use of sexist, racist and heterosexist language. Manuscripts that do not conform to these specifications will not be considered. Authors are encouraged to use clear language which avoids unnecessary jargon.
10. An abstract of approximately 150 words, plus 5-10 key words, should be included with each full length article submission.
11. Authors' names, titles and affiliations, with complete postal and email addresses and telephone/fax numbers, should appear on a separate cover page.
13. Authors will receive electronic offprints of their article and a complimentary journal copy. A maximum of 5 journal copies will be supplied for multi-authored articles. These will be supplied to the main author
Our aim is to publish book reviews (and reviews of other media or fiction, if relevant) which are informative and stimulate further discussion and debate. Feminism & Psychology publishes two kinds of book reviews, as well as review essays:
" A short review of between 500 and 1,000 words draws attention to the book, not simply by describing the book's contents but also by providing some discussion of the aim(s) of the book and an evaluation of the extent to which these aims are met.
" A longer review of between 1,000-2,000 words moves beyond a summary of the contents to provide a critical evaluation of the arguments and approach taken to the subject matter by the author(s). A book review that takes up the author's theoretical, conceptual, practical, political and/or methodological arguments and develops a debate around these issues can become a piece that is worth reading in its own right.
" In a review essay, several books in a topic area (on average 3) are reviewed together in order to explore the topic and the contributions of the texts. The arguments in a review essay will therefore be more wide-ranging.
Book reviews will normally be commissioned by the Book Review Editor although unsolicited reviews will be considered. If you are interested in reviewing for Feminism & Psychology, or have any other queries about book reviews, please get in touch with the Book Reviews Associate Editor, Rose Capdevila.
