Articles may vary in length, though long articles will be published only as space permits. In addition to substantial research papers, we invite submissions for our Comment/Reply, Archive, and Review Essay sections, as well as proposals for our Symposia and Special Features sections. We also invite proposals for Special Issues. Book reviews are normally by invitation.

Manuscripts submitted to Hypatia should not be under simultaneous consideration by any other journal, nor should they have been published elsewhere. The review process takes an average of six months. Though the primary aim of our review process is to select and refine papers for publication, we aim to have the review process nurture and support scholarship in the area of feminist philosophy.

Manuscript Preparation:

  1. Manuscripts should be typed, double-spaced with 1.25 inch margins (including quotations and excerpts, notes, and references), and the right margin should not be justified.
  2. The author should not be identified except on the title page in order to facilitate our anonymous review process. [End Page 296]
  3. Papers should include a 75-word (or less) abstract.
  4. Use 8 × 11-inch white paper. Dot-matrix print is acceptable only if the characters are clear and legible. Send five clean copies of the manuscript.
  5. Use American spellings and punctuation, except when directly quoting a source that has followed British style. Space once after periods and colons. All punctuation, except colons and semicolons, should be placed inside quotation marks. Single quotation marks are used only for quotes within quotes. Quoted material of 10 lines or more in length should be set off from the text without quotation marks as double-indented extracts.
  6. Notes should appear in a separate section at the end of the paper and should be kept brief. Any acknowledgments should appear first, unnumbered.
  7. We use the Author/Date system of citing references, as described in The ChicagoManual of Style (14th ed., University of Chicago Press, 1993). In the text or notes, works should be cited as follows (author, year, page number); for example (Anzaldúa 1990, 86). An author's name can be left out if understood from the context; for example (1990, 86). A list of all works cited should be included after the notes in a list called "References."
