Manuscripts should be submitted electronically to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/gendsoc. Submitting authors are required to set up an online account on the SageTrack system powered by ScholarOne. Manuscripts that are accepted for review will be sent out anonymously for editorial evaluation. Obtaining permission for any quoted or reprinted material that requires permission is the responsibility of the author. Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in the journal. Authors submitting manuscripts to the journal should not simultaneously submit them to another journal, nor should manuscripts have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content. Authors in doubt about what constitutes prior publication should consult the Editor. The online process permits submission of a separate title page, a main manuscript document, and supplementary files. Prior to submission, we recommend consulting the Gender & Society Guide to First Submissions, available here as well as previous issues of the journal to get a sense of the kind of papers we publish.
Papers should be approximately 8,500 words, including tables, notes, and references. All manuscripts must include an abstract of 150-200 words. Authors should consult the Chicago Manual of Style, Style B, for citations and references, or refer to the Gender & Society style manual, available here. Authors should not number the pages; the online system will number the pages.
Blind Review Process
The review process for manuscripts submitted to Gender & Society is anonymous; please remove all material from the manuscript that identifies you. Your submission should be blinded, meaning there is no clear way for reviewers to identify you as the author. All references to your own work should be cited in the third person. Please do not make references to your own work unless they are absolutely necessary; for example, if the reviewer would be able to identify you if a citation was omitted. A reference to any previous work should read: “As Collins (2014) has found…” and NOT like: “As I previously demonstrated… (Collins 2014).” Only include acknowledgements on a separate title page, not on the manuscript document.
For additional information, contact the Gender & Society office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Books for review should be sent to Yasemin Besen-Cassino, Gender & Society Book Review Editor, Montclair State University, 1 Normal Avenue, Montclair, New Jersey 07043; email@example.com. Please note that the journal does not review textbooks, films/DVDs, or books that do not incorporate gender as a central category of analysis. The journal receives far more books than can be reviewed. The journal also does not accept or consider unsolicited book reviews, but instead invites appropriate scholars to review books germane to the scope and mission of Gender & Society.
If you or your funder wish your article to be freely available online to nonsubscribers immediately upon publication (gold open access), you can opt for it to be included in SAGE Choice, subject to payment of a publication fee. The manuscript submission and peer review procedure is unchanged. On acceptance of your article, you will be asked to let SAGE know directly if you are choosing SAGE Choice. To check journal eligibility and the publication fee, please visit SAGE Choice. For more information on open access options and compliance at SAGE, including self author archiving deposits (green open access) visit SAGE Publishing Policies on our Journal Author Gateway.
This journal is able to host additional materials online (e.g. datasets, podcasts, videos, images etc) alongside the full-text of the article. For more information, please refer to our guidelines on submitting supplementary files.
