IJFAB: International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics

Vol. 1 (2008) through current issue

IJFAB: International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics is committed to sustaining and expanding the network of scholars in feminist bioethics. The journal is:

  • Multidisciplinary and reflects the diversity of methods and approaches within feminist bioethics;
  • International and represents the global constituency of FAB and feminist scholarship in bioethics;
  • Committed to exploring the implications of scholarship for public policy;
  • Committed to exploring how gender intersects with other social determinants of privilege and discrimination, including race, class, ethnicity, sexuality, and physical and mental ability;
  • Committed to exploring the relation of feminist theory to feminist pedagogy and feminist practice across a wide variety of domains related to health.

Submission Guidelines

Submission Guidelines

Manuscript Submissions

IJFAB publishes at least one open issue per year in addition to thematically framed special issues. See our CFP page for current calls for upcoming special issues. Please submit your manuscript in any of the categories listed below, and the Editorial Office will see that it is reviewed either for IJFAB's next open issue or for an appropriate special issue.

  • Essays are usually in the range of 8,000–10,000 words (roughly 32–40 manuscript pages). Shorter essays are also welcome, and longer essays will be considered at the discretion of the Editorial Office.
  • Conversations provide a forum for public dialogue on particular issues in bioethics. Scholars engaged in fruitful exchanges are encouraged to share them in the pages of IJFAB. The length of a conversation depends upon the topic and the number of participants. Please contact the Editorial Office with any inquiries or proposals.
  • Commentaries offer an opportunity for analysis of specific policy issues, legislation, court decisions, or other contemporary developments within bioethics. These are usually shorter than essays, but longer pieces on important topics will be considered.
  • Narratives can illuminate clinical practice and ethical thinking. IJFAB invites narratives that shed light on aspects of health, health care, or bioethics. Submissions for the section are usually shorter than articles, but do not have a specific page limit.

All submissions are subject to triple anonymous peer review. The Editorial Office aims to return an initial decision to authors within eight weeks. Authors are frequently asked to revise and resubmit based on extensive reviewer comments. The Editorial Office aims to return a decision on revised papers within four to six weeks.

Manuscripts submitted to IJFAB should not be under simultaneous consideration by any other journal, nor should they have been published elsewhere. Please direct all submissions by email to the Editorial Office at editorialoffice@ijfab.org.

Reviews

IJFAB's Reviews provide a critical introduction to recent works in or related to feminist bioethics. Reviews of a single monograph tend to range between 1,200–2,000 words, but may be longer at the discretion of the Editorial Office. We also invite longer Review Essays that consider two or more recent works on a single theme. Please send all suggestions and inquiries to our Book Review Editor, Katy Fulfer, at fulfer@hood.edu.

All reviews are subject to internal review by the Editorial Office or members of the Editorial Board. Reviews should include neither a title nor an abstract. Review essays should include both. Otherwise please all of the guidelines for manuscript preparation directly below.

Manuscript Preparation

  1. Manuscripts should be double-spaced (including excerpts, notes, and references), and the right margin should not be justified.
  2. To facilitate our anonymous review process, the author should not be identified in the text of the submission or the title page. Please take particular care with instances of self-citation. Neither should he or she be identifiable from any acknowledgements. Should your paper be accepted, these can be added later in the editing process.
  3. Papers should include an abstract of approximately 100 words.
  4. Endnotes should be brief and placed separately at the end of the paper. Any acknowledgments should appear first and be unnumbered.
  5. We use the author/date system of citing references, as described in The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed. In the text or notes, works should be cited as (author year, page number); for example, (Card 2003, 65). The page number alone can be used if understood from the context. Works cited should be included after the notes in a list of references.
  6. Authors are responsible for bringing accepted manuscripts into full compliance with the IJFAB Style Guide as a condition of publication.

Green Open Access Policy

Since open access to scholarly research offers significant educational and social benefits, IJFAB supports “green” open access. Green OA increases the dissemination of research results, makes those results available and citable before formal publication in the pages of the journal, and increases the potential for readership and citations. Because the material is available without charge, green OA also provides access to research to those with limited financial resources.

No less than three months after its acceptance, an author may self-deposit the post-refereed but pre-copyedited and typeset version of her manuscript on her own website, her institution’s website, or in an institutional or subject-based repository. Please note that archiving in a proper repository such as an institution-based one guarantees long-term preservation.

When it becomes available, the author must add the DOI of the version of the article published in IJFAB, properly attribute IJFAB as the original place of publication, and provide correct citation details. An author may not post the version of her article that has undergone copyediting, typesetting, or proof changes nor may any commercial use of the article be made.
