Psychology of Women Quarterly (PWQ) is a feminist, scientific, peer-reviewed journal that publishes empirical research, critical reviews and theoretical articles that advance a field of inquiry, teaching briefs, and invited book reviews related to the psychology of women and gender. Topics include (but are not limited to) feminist approaches, methodologies, and critiques; violence against women; body image and objectification; sexism, stereotyping, and discrimination; intersectionality of gender with other social locations (such as age, ability status, class, ethnicity, race, and sexual orientation); international concerns; lifespan development and change; physical and mental well being; therapeutic interventions; sexuality; social activism; and career development.
This journal will be of interest to clinicians, faculty, and researchers in all psychology disciplines, as well as those interested in the sociology of gender, women’s studies, interpersonal violence, ethnic and multicultural studies, social advocates, policy makers, and teacher education.

Psychology of Women Quarterly accepts submission of original articles only through its online web system at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/pwq.
Please follow the instructions through the site. It will be helpful to have a separate title page and fully masked, electronic main document prepared in advance. The main document must include the Abstract and all Tables, Figures, and appended materials and must mask unpublished Author Citations throughout the manuscript.
Manuscripts should be submitted as an electronic file in Microsoft Word. An accompanying letter should request review and include the following information: that the manuscript (a) is not currently under review elsewhere, (b) has not been previously published in whole or in part, and (c) conforms to APA standards on ethical treatment of participants.
Manuscript Review Policy
Standard masked peer review procedures are used for all submissions. APA policy prohibits an author from submitting the same manuscript for concurrent consideration by more than one journal. Prior or duplicate publication constitutes unethical behavior. Authors have an obligation to consult the Editor if there is any question about an article's suitability for PWQ or if there are questions concerning piecemeal publication (see pp. 13-15 of APA’s Publication Manual, 6th edition). Student reviewers may provide independent reviews under the supervision of a Consulting or Associate Editor.
Manuscript Preparation and Style
Follow the general style guidelines set forth in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition). The entire manuscript - including abstract, quotations, notes, references, figure captions, and tables - must be typed double-spaced. Manuscript pages must be numbered consecutively. The use of sexist or ethnically biased language is unacceptable. Except under unusual circumstances, authors are expected to make available upon request all previously unpublished questionnaires or scales used in an article. The Editor may find it necessary to return a manuscript for reworking or retyping that does not conform to requirements.
Title and Acknowledgements (page 1). To facilitate masked review, all indication of authorship must be limited to this page (other pages must show the short title plus page number at the top right). Include on the title page (a) full article title, (b) names and affiliations of all authors, (c) acknowledgments, and (d) mailing and email addresses and telephone and fax numbers of the individual serving as the point of contact.
Abstract and Keywords (page 2). Abstract should not exceed 200 words. After the abstract, list appropriate keywords for the manuscript, preferably using terms from the Thesaurus of Psychological Terms.
Text (page 3). Use a five-character paragraph indent. Do not use desktop publishing features, such as right margin justification or underline. Only bold and italics may be used. Use a 12-point typeface.
References. References cited in text must appear in the reference list, and entries in the reference list must be cited in the text. Follow the examples in the 6th edition of the APA manual for specific guidelines.
Notes. Footnotes are not permitted in the text. If necessary, endnotes may be used. Number consecutively throughout text and list on a separate page preceding the following section.
Tables. Tables must appear as a unit following the reference section. Each table should be typed double-spaced on a separate sheet, be numbered consecutively, and include a caption. All tables must be cited in the text.
Figures. Figures and artwork should be submitted in the following digital file formats and with minimum resolution of 300 DPI (600 DPI for line art): TIFF, EPS, PDF, JPEG, or Microsoft Word. Prepare figures according to the guidelines provided in the 6th edition of the APA manual.
For questions regarding style, please follow the style guide.
Psychology of Women Quarterly accepts submission of non-empirical contributions to the scholarship of teaching and learning in the psychology of women only through its online web system at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/pwq. Limited to about 10 pages, these essays should follow the general guidelines of APA's Publication Manual, except without an Abstract or title page and confining headings to a single level (Level 1). A 1-2 sentence bio will be requested during the submission process for each contributing author.
Please follow the instructions through the site. It will be helpful to have a separate title page and fully masked, electronic main document prepared in advance.
Teaching essays should be submitted as an electronic file in Microsoft Word. An accompanying letter should request review and include the following information: that the manuscript (a) is not currently under review elsewhere, (b) has not been previously published in whole or in part, and (c) conforms to the 6th edition of APA's Publication Manual.
As part of our commitment to ensuring an ethical, transparent and fair peer review process SAGE is a supporting member of ORCID, the Open Researcher and Contributor ID. ORCID provides a unique and persistent digital identifier that distinguishes researchers from every other researcher, even those who share the same name, and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between researchers and their professional activities, ensuring that their work is recognized.
The collection of ORCID iDs from corresponding authors is now part of the submission process of this journal. If you already have an ORCID iD you will be asked to associate that to your submission during the online submission process. We also strongly encourage all co-authors to link their ORCID ID to their accounts in our online peer review platforms. It takes seconds to do: click the link when prompted, sign into your ORCID account and our systems are automatically updated. Your ORCID iD will become part of your accepted publication’s metadata, making your work attributable to you and only you. Your ORCID iD is published with your article so that fellow researchers reading your work can link to your ORCID profile and from there link to your other publications.
Copyediting, Page Proofs, and Author Copies
The publisher reserves the right to copyedit manuscripts to conform to journal style. The lead author will receive page proofs for correction of typographical errors only. No rewriting of the accepted manuscript will be allowed in the proof stage. The lead author of each article will receive one free electronic copy (in PDF format) of her or his article after publication.
Authors are responsible for obtaining permission to use previously published material. This journal uses an Exclusive License to Publish agreement that requires just one author (the Corresponding Author) to sign on behalf of all authors. Please identify the Corresponding Author for your work when submitting your manuscript for review.
The option of including online information supplemental to a paper is available to authors. Examples include the list of noncited articles included in a meta analysis and materials that might be useful to teachers implementing ideas presented in the teaching section. The 6th edition of the APA manual lists other suggestions for online supplements.
