This journal offers an international, transdisciplinary exploration of social, cultural, historical and material processes, dynamics and structures that make up human experience.
Subjectivity is designed to support and promote the importance of subjectivity as a leading criterion for analysis of psychological, historical, social, cultural and political trends. It supports publication of both open access and/or traditionally published articles.
The journal encapsulates current discussion and debate, and promotes discourse on subjectivity that transcends disciplinary dividing lines and bridges the traditional dichotomies between disciplines. The aim is to influence the terms of debate in social sciences and the humanities from anthropology to geography, sociology, gender studies, post-colonial theory and more.
The journal publishes original articles, critical reviews of books and films, editorials and more. Several times a year the journal offers special issues on topics of recent or compelling interest. The range of coverage is broad, touching on such topics as feminist struggles against death and violence; sense of self after traumatic brain injury; living with advanced cancer; immigration controls and au pairs and domestic worker visa holders in the UK and more.
Subjectivity is a Transformative Journal; authors can publish using the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access.

COVID 19 and impact on peer review
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
