As the first scholarly journal dedicated to documenting the global experiences of women and historical constructions of gender, the Journal of Women’s History publishes articles based on original research that communicates compelling conclusions to a community of scholars whose areas of expertise span all time periods and all areas of the globe. The JWH also publishes reflections on those conceptual, theoretical, and methodological issues common to women’s history. All articles should conform to the JWH Style Guide.

To submit a manuscript, please create an account at the Journal‘s Scholar One page,

Finally, please compose a thoughtful cover letter to explain why the JWH is the ideal intellectual home for this research. Upload this cover letter as prompted by the Scholar One system.

We look forward to reading you!
