Frontiers is currently inviting submissions in all areas of women’s, feminist, and gender studies. In particular, we seek to publish work that continues the tradition of examining relationships among place/space, region, and topics of longstanding concern to feminist scholars that are complexly intersectional, interdisciplinary, and deeply theoretical. We are also encouraging new, challenging formats and styles of production that provoke, interrupt, question, and shift theorization and practice.
We assert that feminist theorizing is integral to analyses of transglobal productions of empire, colonialism, and coloniality and thus equally key to decolonial theorizing and imagining other ways of being. Bodies, power, representation, knowledge, voice, and pleasures are central in feminist thinking and raises questions about how we want to be in relation to each other. The editors of Frontiers welcome submissions of essays, poetry, short fiction, activist statements and manifestos, notes from the field, and artwork for journal covers that represent a significant cultural contribution to the field of Feminist, Women’s, and Gender Studies. Submissions must conform to the following guidelines:
Works must be original. Manuscripts that have been previously published, in whole or in part, or are under consideration for publication elsewhere in any version will not be considered.
Authors must submit an electronic version saved as a Microsoft Word document (double spaced, aligned left, with 1-inch margins, and set in 12-point Times New Roman) and include a title page. Author names should not appear in the manuscript. List contact information, such as name, address, email, and telephone number, on a separate cover sheet.
The style of submissions should follow the latest edition of the Chicago Manual of Style, with apparatus conforming to the endnote (not author-date) citation system. Manuscripts, including endnotes, should not exceed 12,000 words. An abstract (no more than 250 words) and keywords (no more than four) must be included on a separate page.
Only original artwork should be submitted for editorial review. Artwork should be submitted digitally in .tiff or .jpg format, and be no less than 300 dpi, with the smallest dimension measuring at least five inches. Include a brief artist’s statement in a Microsoft Word file, double spaced and accompanied by a title page.
For images to be used as illustrative material in an article, include captions in the approximate location the art is to appear in the article, but save the images separately using the specifications noted above.
All permissions are the responsibility of the author. Permission to reproduce images that were not originally created by the author must accompany illustrations upon final submission.
Submissions are judged by appropriate members of the editorial team and outside readers, a process that may take up to six months. If a work is accepted for publication, we reserve the right to edit it, in consultation with the author, in accordance with our space limitations and editorial guidelines. Contributors will receive one copy of the issue in which their work appears. Authors must agree to assign copyright for published material to Frontiers.
Manuscripts should be submitted through the Frontiers online portal, available at http://www.editorialmanager.com/fron/. Direct email submissions are not accepted.
Other editorial correspondence should be sent via email to FrontiersJournal@utah.edu.

Frontiers Augmented seeks to create a means for deeper engagement with the content published in the Frontiers journal by featuring author interviews, round table discussions, artist perspectives, podcast editions and beyond. It is the hope of the Editorial Collective that deeper context can create the dialogue that can enrich and drive forward academic and personal scholarship in gender and women’s studies as all in the field move forward.
Libraries face a dilemma: the number of books, journals, and other information resources available to offer to their patrons is growing faster than their acquisitions budgets. Decisions about which new materials to add in a given year are influenced by a number of factors, not the least of which are whether they are aware of the existence of a resource and the value that resource would bring to those who rely on the library. Librarians often appreciate the input of users in gathering the information they need to make those evaluations. There is no one right way to share information about a particular journal with a library. Some institutions have formal procedures for submitting acquisition requests, others rely on regular communication between subject area librarians and the departments they serve, and some have no specifically defined method. You are in the best position to determine the most appropriate method for approaching your library with a request for the addition of a journal to its collection. However, we have developed a library recommendation form as one tool you can use to provide your library with relevant information. The form contains basic information about the journal: a description, its print and electronic ISSNs, frequency of publication, pricing, print and electronic options, and ordering information. It also includes a few questions for you to complete that address your evaluation of the journal's value. If you choose to use the form, fill it out then send it to the appropriate individual at your library. Do not return it to the University of Nebraska Press.
