A CALL FOR PAPERS
AN INTERDISCIPLINARY JOURNAL
Editor in Chief
Claremont Graduate University
Women's Studies provides a forum for the presentation of scholarship and
criticism about women in the fields of literature, history, art, sociology,
law, political science, economics, anthropology and the sciences. It also
publishes poetry, short fiction, film and book reviews.
Authors are encouraged to study The MLA Handbook, and follow this in
preparing their papers.
Typescripts: Papers should be typed with double spacing and wide margins (1
to 1-1/2 inches) on good quality paper and submitted in triplicate to the
editor. A stamped and self-addressed envelope should accompany the
typescript. Submission of a paper to this journal will be taken to imply
that it represents original work not previously published, that it is not
being considered elsewhere for publication, and that if accepted for
publication it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in any
language, without the consent of editor and publisher. It is a condition of
the acceptance by the editor of a typescript for publication that the
publishers acquire automatically the copyright in the typescript throughout
Length: The maximum preferred length is 20 typescript pages.
Abstract: Each paper requires an abstract of 100 - 150 words summarizing the
significant points covered.
Illustrations: Where the paper contains illustrations, these should be
numbered with consecutive arabic numbers (Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.), have
descriptive captions, and be mentioned in the text. Keep illustrations
separate from the text, but indicate an approximate position for each in the
Preparation: Illustrations submitted must be of a high enough
standard for direct reproduction. Line drawings should be prepared in black
(India) ink on white paper or tracing cloth, with all necessary lettering
included. Alternatively, good sharp photoprints ("glossies") are acceptable.
Photographs, if submitted, must be good glossy original prints, of maximum
Size: Illustrations should be planned so that they reduce easily to
column width (4 1/4").
Captions: A list of illustration captions, with relevant numbers
(Figure 1, Figure 2, etc.), should be set out on a separate sheet and
included with the typescript.
Tables: Much useful data can be collected in tables, but these should be
presented in a clear and concise form to help both typesetter and reader.
Draw a horizontal rule at the head and at the foot of the table, with one
rule after column headings. Number tables consecutively with roman numerals
(Table I, Table II, etc.), and put a clear descriptive caption at the top of
each table. Avoid the use of vertical rules in tables.
References and Notes: Literature referenced and other notes should be
indicated in the text by consecutive superior arabic numbers. The full list
of references and notes should be collected and typed at the end of the
paper in numerical order. Listed references should be complete in all
details including, in quotes, article titles in journals. Authors' initials
should precede their names, journal title abbreviations should conform to
The MLA International Bibliography. Examples:
1. C. M. Pierce. "Our most crucial domestic issue." Amer. Jour.
Psychiat., 125 (1969), 11-32.
2. G. Myrdal. Challenge to Affluence (New York: Vintage Books,
1965), Chap. 2, pp. 37-45.
Numbered notes and references will be listed at the end of the paper when
set in type (they will not be set as footnotes, as this presents many
Proofs: Authors will receive proofs (including illustrations) by airmail
for correction, which must be returned to the printer within 48 hours of
receipt. The full postal address of the person who will be responsible for
reading proofs should be included with the typescript; this will ensure that
proofs are not delayed in the post. Authors' alterations in excess of 10% of
the original composition cost will be charged to authors.
Reprints: Primary authors will receive 25 free reprints.
