Studies in Gender and Sexuality is a response to the excitement attendant to recent research and writing by scholars and clinicians alike. It provides a forum for examining gender and sexuality that is both multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary; in this way it seeks to broaden the purview—theoretical, clinical, and cultural—of all its readers and to promote constructive exchanges among them. As clinicians and scholars who have written and practiced at the intersection of feminist theory and clinical psychoanalysis for the past two decades, the Editors are particularly interested in those areas of controversy that invite the divergent perspectives and insights of different disciplines.

The primary goal of Studies in Gender and Sexuality is to promote dialogue on these and other timely topics among clinicians, researchers, and theorists. Consonant with this goal, the journal also publishes related work from the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences, where questions involving gender and sexuality are currently in lively debate.

SGS is directed equally to clinicians (psychoanalysts, psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers), developmental researchers, and academics working in cultural anthropology, family history, feminism, gender studies, queer studies, social history, sociology, and women’ studies, all of whom share an interest in contemporary perspectives on gender and sexuality. The journal is open to a variety of theoretical clinical, and methodological approaches to these broad topics consistent with its goal of promoting interdisciplinary dialogue among contributors and readers.

Submission guidelines

Only original material, heretofore unpublished in any form and not under simultaneous review by another journal, is eligible for publication in Studies in Gender and Sexuality. Submit your manuscript as an email attachment to Martha Hadley, Ph.D., Co-Editor ( Any figures or tables that are part of the manuscript must be submitted in reproducible hard copy or in camera-ready electronic form. Authors are required to sign an agreement for the transfer of copyright to the publisher. All accepted manuscripts, artwork, and photographs become the property of the publisher. As an author, you are required to secure permission if you want to reproduce any figure, table, or extract from the text of another source. This applies to direct reproduction as well as “derivative reproduction” (where you have created a new figure or table which derives substantially from a copyrighted source).

Manuscript Preparation: Manuscripts should be 20-40 standard manuscript pages (approximately 1500 characters per page) in length, with each page containing 25 double-spaced lines and having margins of 1.5 inches (left) and 1 inch (right, top, and bottom). Please use a non-proportional font (Courier 12) rather than a proportional font (e.g., Times New Roman). All material, including quotations, footnotes, and reference lists, must be double spaced.

The title page of the article should contain author name(s) and degree(s)/affiliation(s), title of article, and all contact information (mailing address, phone/fax numbers, and mailing address) of the corresponding author. To facilitate blind review, only the title page of the manuscript should contain this identifying information. The second page should include the article title, an abstract of 150-200 words, and a list of key words for use in indexing.

Submitted articles that have passed preliminary screening for topicality and readability will undergo blind peer review. The normal review period is three (3) months. After a manuscript has been accepted for publication, the authors will be asked to submit an electronic copy via email to Any figures or tables that are part of the manuscript must be submitted at this time in camera-ready form (high-quality hard copy or high-resolution image file, e.g., .tif ).

References: In the manner of most psychoanalytic journals, text references follow the author-date system, e.g., (Smith, 1978) and are cited within the text, not as footnotes or endnotes. Multiple text references are listed chronologically, not alphabetically. Every text citation must have its corresponding reference listing (on a separate page at the end of the article), and the reference list should contain publication information about only those sources cited in the text.
Quotations must be followed by their source page numbers in parentheses, e.g., (p. 120); a quotation of more than five (5) typewritten lines will be set as an extract and should be typed as a double-spaced indented block. A detailed style sheet for final preparation of reference lists will be sent to authors of manuscripts accepted for publication.

Color Reproduction: Color art will be reproduced in color in the online publication at no additional cost to the author. Color illustrations will also be considered for print publication; however, the author will be required to bear the full cost involved in color art reproduction. Please note that color reprints can only be ordered if print reproduction costs are paid. Print Rates: $900 for the first page of color; $450 per page for the next three pages of color. A custom quote will be provided for articles with more than four pages of color. Art not supplied at a minimum of 300 dpi will not be considered for print.
