Guidelines for Authors Submitting Articles
Feminist Teacher seeks well-written and accessible essays, articles, course descriptions, and annotated bibliographies from a variety of feminist viewpoints. Feminist Teacher reaches educators in a variety of disciplines and at all grade levels – grade school through graduate school – in traditional as well as nontraditional classroom settings. We ask authors to keep the diversity of this audience in mind and to avoid technical or abstract language. Some articles may include a course description and/or syllabus. To make these as useful and accessible as possible to readers, we ask that contributors include full citations of all texts as well as a brief introduction to clarify the background, primary concerns, or other important aspects of the class or material.
Manuscript Preparation: Manuscripts should be submitted as email attachments in MS Word or rich text format. Manuscripts should be double-spaced on 8 1/2 x 11 pages. While there is no set page length, most manuscripts will be between 20 and 30 pages. The title page should include your name, address, institutional affiliation, and an abbreviation of the title to be used as a runninghead. Do not put your name on any text pages. On a separate page, please submit an abstract (about 100 words) and a very short biographical sketch (about 50 words).
All manuscripts are acknowledged when received, without obligation for publication. The editorial collective will decide on manuscripts and notify the author, usually within six months. Authors of accepted articles will be asked to make revisions, or the editors may make revisions with the author's approval. All contributors are asked to sign a copyright transfer agreement.
Permission: We must know if a submission has been published previously, and we cannot accept any manuscript that is concurrently under consideration with another journal.
References: Contributors should refer to The MLA Handbook (6th ed.). All references must be closely checked to determine that dates and spellings are correct. Use parenthetical author-date references. The reference list at the end of an article should be alphabetized by author; multiple works of one author should be ordered chronologically, and each entry should include full first and last names, not initials. Entries should appear as follows (if you are reading this in an electronic version, please note that book and journal titles should be italicized even though they may not appear so here; see The MLA Handbook for further examples):
