Aims and scope

The European Journal of Politics and Gender (EJPG) is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes international, cutting-edge research in the broad field of politics and gender. EJPG is endorsed by the Gender and Politics Standing Group of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR).

EJPG is firmly embedded in global politics and gender scholarship; its scope is not limited to Europe. It aims to advance gender and politics research in all its diversity. To this end it publishes research articles in the wide field of gender and politics, including a variety of geographical and thematic foci, methods and epistemological traditions. Contributions may rely on single-country case studies as much as cross-national comparative work or theoretical debates. The core criterion for publication is innovation and rigorous argumentation. Articles must have a clear ‘take home message'.

EJPG understands gender as a political phenomenon that shapes power relations. Gender is contextual and is influenced by the intersection of multiple social categories and identities. The processes produce patterns of political inclusion and exclusion that are sometimes immediately visible, but often also hidden. EJPG therefore studies formal and informal components of politics in local, national, transnational and global realms. Subfields encompass, but are not limited to: social movements; representation; political participation; governance; public policy; the European Union; political economy; conflict and development; citizenship; LGBTQI politics; sexuality; and international relations.

EJPG solicits 'State of the art' pieces which provide timely analyses of developments in the many subfields of politics and gender. These contributions focus on salient and contemporary themes. What are new research puzzles and dilemmas? Finally, EJPG includes a Gender Updates section, in which short descriptive pieces present data or analyses related to elections, policy changes and public debates on gender-related issues. This section is a valuable resource for scholars, students, activists and practitioners who may use this data for research and interventions in policy and public debate.

What are we looking for?

  • Expectations for all submissions: The European Journal of Politics and Gender (EJPG) is an interdisciplinary journal that publishes pieces whose frameworks, methodologies, and or/contributions are located within or intersect with political science. We welcome submissions from all subfields of political science and from adjacent fields (sociology, economics, and anthropology among others), provided there is a clear intersection with politics and policy. We welcome submissions that are interdisciplinary and that take diverse and novel methodological approaches. Nonetheless, we do expect that pieces will engage with research questions, debates, and literature in political science. Fit with the journal’s remit as addressing gender and politics is a central criterion used for assessing whether a submission advances to peer review. EJPG is global in scope, and submissions may cover any geographic region. Authors may wish to review the ‘aims and scope’ section of the website as they prepare their submission. 
     
  • Research articles:  Research articles should use argument, evidence, and data to advance their claims. Research articles may cover single-country case studies or be comparative in scope; they may be large or small-n, and they may employ a range of methodological approaches and research designs. The style should be analytic and critical. The core criteria for publication in EJPG are innovation and academic rigour. Eligible articles should have something new to say, even when they address ‘traditional’ questions. We recognize that much of the work done by scholars of politics and gender has real-world implications and that this work informs how laws, policies, and practices can be amended and transformed to produce better outcomes. We encourage authors to draw out these implications, but to primarily focus on presenting and analyzing the evidence in relation to the existing body of work in the field of gender and politics. Contributions should have a clear ‘take-home message’ relevant to the field. Contributions may include, for example, extending the research agenda through identifying new research questions; adding nuance to extant understandings of, or approaches to, particular topics, issues, or problems; and by developing conceptual frameworks, or bringing new empirical insights that advance analysis in new theoretical or empirical directions. We discourage authors from presenting submissions that are purely prescriptive. Research articles must not exceed 9,000 words in length, including any notes, tables, and figures but excluding the references, abstract, and key messages. Excluding references from the word limit is intended to encourage authors to engage in an inclusive citation practice, and editors may work with authors to address bibliography length in certain cases.
     
  • State of the art: articles should engage with and speak to the latest research in gender and politics, with an emphasis on political science and adjacent fields (primarily fields in the social sciences but also, in some instances, anthropology, history, and geography). They broadly provide a literature review on a subfield of politics and gender. Authors will identify new puzzles and dilemmas and propose new avenues for future research agendas. They should guide and orient gender and politics scholars to the current debates and tensions within, and to the potential resolution among, strands of the political science and related literatures that touch upon their research. ‘State of the art’ articles may be submitted directly to the journal without querying the editors first.  Criteria for evaluating State of the Art pieces include the comprehensiveness and creativeness of the literature discussed and the debates engaged. These articles must not exceed 9,000 words in length, including any notes, tables, and figures but excluding the references, abstract, and key messages. Excluding references from the word limit is intended to encourage authors to engage in an inclusive citation practice, and editors may work with authors to address bibliography length in certain cases.
     
  • Gender updates: short and informative pieces on gender-related politics and policy. Topics include, but are not limited to, analysis of election results, policy changes, new regulation, and social mobilisation. Gender update pieces will be solicited by the editorial team. If you would like to write a piece for this section, please contact the editors for an informal discussion first. Contributions to the Gender updates section must not exceed 1,500 words in length (excluding references), with up to six keywords/short phrases. They do not require an abstract or key messages.

How to submit

Editorial Manager

All submissions should be made online at the European Journal of Politics and Gender Editorial Manager website: http://www.editorialmanager.com/ejpg/default.aspx.
Manuscripts must be in Word or Rich Text Format (not pdf). New users should first create an account, specify their areas of interest and provide full contact details.

House Style

Authors do not need to format their submission in accordance with EJPG's house style on initial submission, but will be required to follow the formatting guidance fully should they be invited to revise and resubmit their manuscript.

Preparing your anonymised manuscript
Your initial submission must consist of the following separate files:

  1. A cover page including: the article title, author name(s) and affiliations (institution affiliation and country only, no department details required), an abstract up to 150 words (except Gender updates), up to six key words/short phrases and the article word count (excluding references for research articles and gender updates). A cover page template is available to download here.
     
  2. A fully anonymised manuscript which does not include any of the information included in the cover page. It should not include any acknowledgements, funding details or conflicts of interest that would identify the author(s). Avoid, or try to minimise, self-citation; authors may include a very limited number of self-references where this is key to the paper and/or to avoid creating the impression of not being aware of this literature. We normally expect to see no more than five self-references (all authors included) in the entire manuscript. As we read the paper, if we feel that the number of self-references is too high, we will return the paper to you asking you to reduce the number of self-references. Where you do need to cite your own work please make sure that you anonymise the reference, e.g. write 'Smith has argued', not 'I have argued'. Please note that submissions that have not been sufficiently anonymised or that contain too many self-citations will be returned.
     
  3. If you have any figures and tables these can be included in the manuscript on the first submission but must be uploaded as separate files at the end of the manuscript when submitting the final version. Please indicate where these should be placed in the text by inserting: ‘Figure X here’ and provide numbers, titles and sources where appropriate.
     
  4. In order to improve our accessibility for people with visual impairments, we are now required to ask authors to provide a brief description known as alt text to describe any visual content such as photos, illustrations or figures. It will not be visible in the article but is embedded into the images so a PDF reader can read out the descriptions. Guidance on how to write this is available here: Bristol University Press | Alt-text guidance for authors.

For help submitting an article via Editorial Manager, please view our online tutorial.

Once a submission has been conditionally accepted, you will be invited to submit a final, non-anonymised version.

Checklist: what to include in your final non-anonymised manuscript:

A cover page including:

  1. Title: short and concise running title and, if necessary, a (short) informative subtitle;
  2. Author: names and affiliations (institution affiliation and country only, no department details required);
  3. Abstract: no longer than 150 words, outlining the central question, approach/method, findings and take home message (not needed for Gender updates);
  4. Key words: up to six.

The main manuscript including:

  1. The non-anonymised text of your article: Research articles must not exceed 9,000 words (excluding references, key messages and the abstract), State of the art articles must not exceeding 8,000 words including notes, references, tables, figures etc.; manuscripts for the Gender updates section should not exceed 1,500 words (excluding references). This applies to all stages of the review process. Please note that submissions which exceed the word limit will be returned for shortening.
  2. Key messages: Each article (except Gender updates) must include 34 ‘key messages’ summarising the main messages from the paper in bullet points. The contribution made by the paper to the field should be clear from these key messages. Each bullet point must be less than 100 characters. These points may be used by the editorial board to promote your article on Twitter.
  3. Funding details: list any funding including the grant numbers you have received for the research covered in your article as follows: ‘This work was supported by the [Funding Agency] under Grant [number xxxx].’ 
  4. Conflict of interest statement: please declare any possible conflicts of interest, or state ‘The Author(s) declare(s) that there is no conflict of interest’ if there are none.
  5. Acknowledgements: acknowledge people who have provided you with any substantial assistance or advice with collecting the data, developing your ideas, editing or any other comments to develop your argument or text. 
  6. Bio note: supply a short biographical statement for each of the authors of maximum 50 words. 
  7. Figures and tables: should be submitted as separate files. Figures should ideally be in an Encapsulated PostScript (.eps) file format. Please indicate where figures and tables should be placed in the text by inserting: ‘Figure/Table X here’ and provide numbers, titles and sources (where appropriate).

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Guest Editor for the European Journal of Politics and Gender (EJPG). EJPG is a double-anonymous peer-reviewed journal that publishes international, cutting-edge research in the broad field of politics and gender.

The Editors welcome proposals for Special Issues, which are comprised of original research articles that coordinate on a shared theme.

The Editors will make every effort to communicate a decision within four weeks of this deadline. Proposals for Special issues are considered three times per year. The next deadlines are 28 February 2024 and 30 June 2024, 31 October 2024..

Special Issue Proposals
Proposals should be prepared and submitted by the guest editors, in collaboration with the contributing authors. Guest editors may wish to first consult the accompanying document, ‘Instructions for Guest Editors’, available here.

Proposals should be no more than 8 single-spaced pages in length and should contain the following:

●    A title, clearly reflecting the content of the proposed special issue;
●    A rationale: justification of the topic, description of the theme, coherence and overall contribution;
●    Elaboration of how the issue fits within EJPG (please see additional information pasted below); 
●    A provisional table of contents with article titles and authors (between 6 and 10 articles is possible);
●    A detailed timetable for the review process (including a process wherein the guest editors will internally review and provide feedback to authors and including a final deadline when all papers will be submitted for to the EJPG for external review);
●    Abstracts of all the papers (500 words per abstract max, where each abstract includes a clear question, describes the theoretical or conceptual framework and the methods and explains the main take-home message, finding, or key contribution;
●    Bio notes (100 words max) for each contributing author;
●    Bio notes (200 words max) for the guest editors, including past editorial experience.


Additional information
When preparing the SI proposal, rationale and the individual abstracts, please review the EJPG’s expectations (below) and the ‘About our Journal Page’, available at: https://bristoluniversitypressdigital.com/view/journals/ejpg/ejpg-overview.xml?tab_body=about. 

Expectations for all submissions
The European Journal of Politics and Gender is centred in political science. We welcome submissions from all subfields of political science and from adjacent fields (sociology, economics and anthropology among others). We further welcome submissions that are interdisciplinary and that take diverse and novel methodological approaches. Nonetheless, we do expect that pieces will engage with research questions, debates and literature in political science. Fit with the journal’s remit as a political science journal is a central criteria used for assessing whether a submission advances to peer review. 

Expectations for Research Articles 
Research articles should use argument, evidence and data to advance their claims. Research articles may cover single country case studies or be comparative in scope. The style should be analytic and critical. We recognize that much of the work done by scholars of politics and gender has real-world implications and that this work informs how laws, policies and practices can be amended and transformed to produce better outcomes. We encourage authors to draw out these implications, but to primarily focus on presenting and analyzing the evidence in relation to the existing body of work in the field. This presentation may include offering new conceptual frameworks for understanding existing phenomena and/or reaching new insights and conclusions about existing or new phenomena. We discourage authors from presenting submissions that are purely prescriptive. 

Proposals and any queries should be sent to the journal editors at: editors@ejpg-journal.com
