Men and Masculinities

Men and Masculinities


eISSN: 15526828 | ISSN: 1097184X | Current volume: 24 | Current issue: 4 Frequency: 5 Times/Year
Men and Masculinities publishes peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary scholarship on the topic of masculinities. We welcome empirical, theoretical, and literature review submissions that employ diverse methodologies and draw from a range of disciplines, including sociology, anthropology, feminist studies, psychology, media and communication studies, history, criminology, literature, racial and ethnic studies, cultural studies, and others. Men and Masculinities invites submissions by scholars from around the world. The journal is committed to publishing critical masculinities scholarship grounded in the most current theoretical perspectives within gender studies, particularly intersectional feminism and queer theory. And we are interested in cutting-edge work that engages with gender theory in ways that push at the boundaries of “masculinities studies.”
This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).
Men and Masculinities publishes critical masculinities scholarship from around the world. With a goal to make cutting-edge research available to readers, instructors, researchers, and policymakers, the journal also acts as a collective of international and interdisciplinary scholars who engage current debates in gender and sexuality studies as a broader field of inquiry.

While launched at a time when "men's studies" was emerging, Men and Masculinities today is a feminist journal pillaring masculinities scholarship that centers power and inequities and that takes an intersectional approach to the study of gender. Moving beyond a focus on cis men, it is a home for masculinities scholarship that contributes to social constructionist discussions and debates on identity, politics, and the organization of the global world.

  • Men and Masculinities welcomes empirical, theoretical, and literature review articles that critically explore masculinities from feminist, intersectional, and social constructivist perspectives, and that are written for an interdisciplinary audience. The journal subscribes to principles of feminist, queer-inclusive, and anti-racist publishing, and the editors are committed to publishing significant empirical and theoretical work. We also publish essays as stand-alone pieces or collectively as special topical symposiums.

    Submission Site:

    Authors should submit their manuscripts through Manuscript Central. Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in the journal. Manuscripts should not be under consideration by any other publishers while being reviewed by Men and Masculinities. Neither should submissions have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content or findings.

    Blinding Your Manuscript:

    Manuscripts submitted to Men and Masculinities undergo double-blind peer review. As such, authors should take care to ensure their identities cannot be determined by reviewers. The following steps should be followed to ensure proper blinding:

    1. All identifying information (including author name, funding sources, and affiliated university information) should be removed from both the manuscript and the abstract. If necessary, this information can be replaced with: “[redacted for blind review]”.
    2. Any cited publications written in part or full by an author of the submitted manuscript should be blinded in both the text and the reference list. For example, the in-text citation for an article published by manuscript author Sara Gutiérrez in 2017, should read: “(Author 2017)”. In the reference list, the citation for this article should read “Author. 2017.” This citation should appear in the reference list where the word “Author” falls alphabetically—not, in this example, with the Gs.
    3. Any tracked changes should be removed from the manuscript and the abstract. A clean copy of the manuscript should be submitted.

    If you believe the above method of blinding will not work for your manuscript, and you would like to consult on the best alternative, please email the Men and Masculinities editorial office.

    Full Manuscript Submissions:

    Manuscripts should conform to author-date stylistic guidelines of the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition and include four separate documents:

    • A fully blinded abstract of 150 words or fewer. The author(s’) name(s) should not appear in the abstract.
    • A fully blinded manuscript of approximately 7,000 to 8,000 words, including main body text, references, notes, tables, and images. Each manuscript must be double-spaced, font size 12, and paragraph indented with at least 1" margins on all sides. The author(s’) name(s) and institutional affiliation(s) should not appear in the manuscript.
    • A title page listing the manuscript title, author name, affiliation, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address. (For multiple-author papers, provide complete information for each author and indicate the corresponding author.) 
    • A biographical note of 100 words or fewer, indicating each of the authors’ affiliation, research interests, and recent or major publications.

    Essay Submissions:

    Essay submissions should conform to author-date stylistic guidelines of the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition. Some essay submissions are subject to peer review while others are reviewed in-house by the Editors (depending on topic and argument). Essay submissions should include four separate documents in anticipation of undergoing double-blind peer review:

    • A fully blinded abstract of approximately 100 words. The author(s’) name(s) should not appear in the abstract.
    • A fully blinded essay of 2,000-3,000 words, including main body text, references, notes, tables, and images. Each manuscript must be double-spaced, font size 12, and paragraph indented with at least 1" margins on all sides. The author(s’) name(s) and institutional affiliation(s) should not appear in the manuscript.
    • A title page listing the manuscript title, author name, affiliation, mailing address, phone number, and e-mail address. (For multiple-author submissions, provide complete information for each author and indicate the corresponding author).
    • A biographical note of 100 words or fewer, indicating each of the authors’ affiliation, research interests, and recent or major publications.

    Book Review Submissions:

    Men and Masculinities publishes reviews of books from across a range of academic disciplines, as well as on occasion academic reviews of popular books. If you are interested in being invited to review a book for the journal, email the editorial office. Book review authors should submit their reviews through our online submission site. Book reviews should also conform to author-date stylistic guidelines of the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition. See our Book Review Guidelines for details on how to write a book review for the journal.

    To have your book considered for review at Men and Masculinities, please have the publisher mail a copy to:

    Tristan Bridges, Men and Masculinities

    Department of Sociology

    University of California, Santa Barbara

    Santa Barbara, CA 93106

    While we consider every book sent to the journal for possible review, submitting a book does not constitute a promise on behalf of the journal to have the book reviewed. Please contact the editorial office with questions about the book review process.

    Preprints:

    Men and Masculinities may accept submissions of papers that have been posted on preprint servers. Please alert the editorial office when submitting, and if possible include the DOI for the preprint in the designated field in the manuscript submission system. This helps us to connect manuscripts with posted preprints so that we have a better idea of engagement with work published in the journal, but plays no part in the decision process. If your paper is accepted for publication in Men and Masculinities, you will be required to include a link to any versions of the work posted on preprint sites like SocArXiv or PsychArXiv, for instance.

    Visit the SAGE Journals and Preprints page for more details about preprints.

    Authorship:

    All and only parties who have made a substantive contribution to the manuscript should be listed as authors. Authorship order should be based entirely on the relative contributions of each author. Students should generally be listed as principal authors on coauthored publications deriving or substantially deriving from their own research. Faculty mentors may only appear as coauthors when they have participated in a substantial way beyond normative expectations of mentorship (e.g., collecting data, substantially contributing to the writing of the manuscript such as writing the theoretical framing for the contribution). In the absence of these types of substantial contributions, mentors should not appear as coauthors. Any disputes about authorship will be handled by the Editors, establishing an advisory committee of feminist scholars within the field.
