Australian Feminist Studies is an international, peer-reviewed journal published quarterly by Routledge/Taylor & Francis. The journal was launched in 1985 and during the subsequent three decades it has become a leading journal of feminist studies.

The journal aims to:

·          be a key forum for transformative feminist ideas and analyses, nationally and internationally

·          be genuinely interdisciplinary in scope

We promote innovative and field-defining feminist scholarship within and across academic disciplines. We invite original and challenging articles of the highest calibre on any topic that contributes to current and emerging theory and research of relevance to feminism. We are particularly interested in receiving essays that address key theoretical questions in contemporary feminism and/or which cover topics in cultural studies, modernist studies, fan studies, film and television studies, postcolonial studies, science and technology studies.

Australian Feminist Studies publishes the following types of contributions:

  • Original scholarly articles up to 8,000 words in length. 
  • Research Notes, Feminist Debates and Reflections up to 5,000 words in length.
  • Book reviews and Review Essays up to 4,000 words in length.

The journal also accepts proposals for themed special issues. The deadline for these proposals is 30 June annually.
