Notice to Contributors The Editors invite submission of article-length manuscripts (not exceeding 35 pages in length), famous quotations relating to women's history (sexist or simply antiquated), and reports suitable for publishing in the International Trends in Women's History and Feminism section. Please send four copies to: Editors, THE JOURNAL OF WOMEN'S HISTORY, c/o History Department, Ballantine Hall 742, Indiana University, Bloomington , DM 47405. Please include a stamped self-addressed postcard acknowledging receipt of your manuscript. We regret that we are unable to return manuscripts. Those manuscripts accepted for publication will require one additional hard copy and computer file on disk. We prefer 51Zi" 360K or 3W 720K MS-DOS disks (IBM-compatible). We also accept Macintosh disks. Authors will be asked to make copy-editing changes on disks. Style Hard copy printouts of files should be double-spaced throughout, with footnotes appearing at the end. The author's name and address should appear on a separate page in order to facilitate blind review. Reports on work in progress and short annotated documents or interviews are also welcome, in addition to more traditional scholarly articles. While author's preferences will be considered, it is the Editors' policy to refer to women by their last names and to use African-Americans to designate US. citizens of African descent. Gender-specific terms should not be used to refer to mixed groups (e.g., using "mankind" to refer to all people) or to personify such groups as male (e.g., "the historian's perception of his role..."). Endnotes should also be double-spaced and follow the short form of the University of Chicago Manual of Style.
