Submission of Manuscripts

All submissions should follow the instructions below and should be made online through ScholarOne's Manuscript Central site for Feminist Economics.


Please log on the Manuscript Central website. If you are a new user, you will first need to create an account to log onto the website. After logging on you may make a submission via the Author Center. For questions and a user guide, please use the "Get Help Now" button at the top right of every screen. Further help is available through Manuscript Central customer support at +1 (434) 817-2040 x167.

All manuscripts must conform to the journal's Editorial Policies, Conditions of Submission, and Style Guidelines. Articles should be written as clearly and as concisely as possible, with the goal of broad accessibility to an audience of economists, scholars in related fields, and feminists concerned with economic issues.

Please review our Data Sharing Policy as well before submitting. 

In the interest of anonymous reviewing, the author's name, contact information, biographical information, and any acknowledgments should not be included anywhere in the main manuscript document. Such information and other personal and manuscript details should be given on separate screens. In order to upload your article via Manuscript Central, you will be required to provide the following: an abstract of not more than 150 words, a biographical note (40–100 words) for each author, full postal and e-mail addresses, all relevant telephone and fax numbers, 3–6 keywords suitable for indexing and abstracting services, and 1–3 JEL codes.


Authors submitting revised manuscripts should do so through the Manuscript Central system. They should check the box indicating that the manuscript was submitted before. Authors of all revised submissions should include an explanation of the changes in the manuscript, either in a cover letter or an attachment.


All manuscripts must conform to the journal's Editorial Policies, Conditions of Submission, and Style Guidelines.

Submissions should be in English. However, Feminist Economics is willing to conduct a preliminary evaluation of articles in Spanish and French, provided appropriate reviewers are available. After preliminary evaluation, those authors who are encouraged to submit papers for full peer review will be asked to submit their papers in English. The journal cannot guarantee funding for translation but will collaborate with authors' efforts to seek outside funding for this purpose.

Notes should be kept to a minimum and will be reproduced as endnotes. First names of authors cited must be included in citations and references.
