Journal of Bisexuality
In addition to accepting for review submission for its general issues (which cover numerous disciplines across the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and arts), the Journal of Bisexuality also invites essays for "special clusters" on the following topics. (See below for more information about the journal in general).
Race, Ethnicity, Bisexuality
The Journal of Bisexuality invites submission that address the intersection of race, ethnicity, and bisexuality. Specific topics and disciplinary approaches are open. Contact the editor for additional information or to propose an article.
Sexual Frontiers / Bisexuality
The Journal of Bisexuality invites submission that address the issue of bisexuality or bi-eroticism in the sexual frontier—a broad array of sexual practices, positions, and identifications encompassing kink, sadomasochism, polyamory, and other non-normative, boundary-pushing sexual expressions and positionalities. Personal narratives may be eligible for publication provided that they situate themselves in rich theoretical frameworks. Specific topics and disciplinary approaches are open.

"The Future(s) of Bisexuality"
This editors of The Journal of Bisexuality invite essays that explore the future(s) of bisexuality—as an identity, as a community grouping, as a flash point for activism, as a critical way to interrogate and understand hetero- and mono-sexualities, and as an erotic inspiration for a variety of art projects. We are particularly interested in scholarly, personal, and experimental articles that explore what the future of bisexuality might be in shifting cultural, social, and political climates. Whatever form they take—scholarly analyses, rich personal narratives, experimental articles—any work submitted should trace how bisexuality has emerged as a marker of identity, community, and politics as a way of grounding a discussion of where bisexuality may take us—and the larger culture—as an identity, a community, and a politics. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
• How has the emergence of bisexuality in specific communities, in the mass media, in the public sphere affected larger discourses about sex and sexuality? What are some long-term ramifications of such effects?
• How do bisexuals and bisexual communities affect social spaces—and how might such spaces be changed by the presence of bi- and bi-friendly people?
• What particular effects—social, ideological, political—are made possible by the increasing visibility of "B" in the LGBT conglomerate? How has the LGBT community changed—and how might it continue to change—because of a growing "B" presence?
• How might increasing understandings of bisexual or bi-erotic relations in other cultures affect Western understandings and topologies of sex and sexuality?
• What might future sexualities look like, and how might contemporary bisexuality impact the construction of such identities?
• What does science fiction (or even science "fact" about sex and sexuality) tell us about the future of bisexuality?
