Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • The submission is offered exclusively for consideration by feminists@law. It has not been previously published, nor has it been submitted to another journal for consideration, unless by specific agreement with the Editor.
  • The submission file is in an editable format (not PDF).
  • Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
  • The text employs italics rather than underlining (except with URL addresses); and all illustrations, figures, and tables are placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
  • If submitting to a peer-reviewed section of the journal, the instructions in Ensuring a Blind Review have been followed.
  • The author/s have the right to use or reproduce any figures, pictures, or video or audio material included in the submission.

Author Guidelines

feminists@law does not have a standard format or style guide for print submissions. We will publish items submitted in any style or format, whether incorporating footnotes or in-text references together with a bibliography, or both. We ask only that the style adopted be internally consistent, and that references in footnotes or the bibliography be complete. That is, references should contain sufficient information to enable a reader to locate the source for themselves.

feminists@law does not make any charge to authors for publication.


Video and audio files are published in this section.


Articles undergo initial review to determine whether they are of publishable standard and fall within the remit of the journal. If so, they will be subject to a process of double-blind peer review.

Feminist Engagements with the Return to the Commons



feminists@law aims to publish critical, interdisciplinary, theoretically engaged scholarship that extends feminist debates and analyses relating to law and justice (broadly conceived). It has a particular interest in critical and theoretical approaches and perspectives that draw upon postcolonial, transnational and poststructuralist work. We invite submissions of the following:


1. Standard book reviews – reviewing new books which fall within the above categories


2. Film reviews – as above


3. Shorts – up to 250 words of both films and books (a good place for PhD students to start!)


4. Interviews with authors (in text, audio or video format) – provide background information as well as informed questioning


5. Re-readings of classic feminist legal and other relevant texts


6. Book review essays – longer essays which compare/contrast a number of texts in a particular field


7. Book discussions – responses to a book by two or more authors/readers (in text, audio or video format); may also include a response from the author of the book


8. Other creative review ideas welcome – please discuss with the Review editor


Word lengths for text reviews are flexible, though the review should be focused and engaging.
