International Journal of Gender and Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary international journal which publishes articles relating to gender and sex from a feminist perspective covering a wide range of subject areas including the social and natural sciences, the arts, the humanities and popular culture. The journal seeks articles from around the world that examine gender and the social construction of relationships among genders. In drafting papers authors should consider the readability of their paper for readers outside of their discipline. Articles appearing in Journal of Gender and Women’s Studies analyze gender and gendered processes in interactions, organizations, societies, and global and transnational spaces. The journal primarily publishes empirical articles, which are both theoretically engaged and methodologically rigorous, including qualitative, quantitative, and comparative methodologies. The journal also publishes reviews of books from a diverse array of social science disciplines.
