Impact Factor 2016

Feminist Review are delighted to announce that the 2016 Impact Factor for the journal has risen to 1.519, from 1.156 in 2015. The journals’ ranking in the ‘Women’s Studies’ category has also risen from 15/40 in 2015 to 9/41. This is fantastic progress for the journal, and we are thrilled to see the Impact Factor rising. However, for the Collective, our core focus remains the publication of high quality, critical and innovative scholarship contributed by our community of Feminist Review authors. We look forward to building on our thirty-eight years of publishing, and continuing to promote the most insightful academic research into feminist theory.
