Enquiries about the appropriateness of manuscripts for Feminist Review should be directed to the Editorial Office at

Submission of a paper to the journal will be taken to imply that it presents original, unpublished work not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

Please read the instructions carefully before submitting your manuscript, making sure your main manuscript file is anonymous (and contains the abstract and keywords which will also need to be pasted into the submission form) and that you upload a separate contact details/biographies file as directed. Incomplete submissions will be returned.

Feminist Review is a peer-reviewed journal. All submitted articles are initially read anonymously by two or more members of the FR editorial collective. Articles that are suitable for Feminist Review are subsequently sent out, again anonymously, to up to 4 external reviewers, who are experts in the article’s subject area.

Feminist Review is committed to publishing high quality articles. Only a select number of articles are sent out for anonymous peer review, but we endeavour to let people know about the progress of their submission within 6–8 weeks.

Submissions to Feminist Review: Non-Themed Issues

Feminist Review welcomes submissions for publication in the journal in line with its aims.
We are an interdisciplinary feminist journal with an interest in publishing innovative, interesting work that cuts across boundaries and takes risks with form as well as content. We publish both full-length academic articles and shorter Open Space pieces in each non-themed issue. Open Space aims to create dialogue and present work in progress as well as polemic, poetry and other non-standard interventions.

We publish one non-themed issue of around 6-7 articles a year, which means that only a small selection of the many articles submitted to Feminist Review are taken through peer-review and on to eventual publication. Yet this also means that those pieces we do support through this process are usually published within a year of submission, much more quickly than journals that accept a higher percentage of submissions . All non-themed submissions are reviewed by two collective editors in the first instance and a selection of full-length articles sent out for review.

Over the past 12 months 16% of articles submitted via the open submission system have been taken through the FR review process.

If you have any questions about submission for a non-themed issue, please contact Sadie Wearing in the first instance.
