EXAMPLES:

The Textile Museum Journal, a peer-reviewed annual journal published by the George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum, appears in digital and print versions in color, which allows the incorporation of other media, such as video and sound. We encourage authors to consider incorporating those formats into their articles. Full-length articles for the journal typically range from 5,000 to 10,000 words, including endnotes, figure captions, and bibliography. We also accept submissions for research notes and book reviews, which range in length from 2,000 to 3,000 words.

Articles generally should be 10,000 to 20,000 words and book reviews 3,000 to 5,000 word sin length. Articles should be provided with Chinese and English abstracts of no more than 300 words, along with 3–5 keywords. Prospective authors should consult the style-sheet of the journal.

The Commentary and Criticism section of Feminist Media Studies aims to publish brief (~1000 words), timely responses to current issues in feminist media culture, for an international readership. Submissions may pose a provocation, describe work in progress, or propose areas for future study. We will also consider book and event reviews, as well as contributions that depart from traditional academic formats. We encourage all submissions to strategically mobilize critique to also offer a productive contribution to both feminist politics and media studies. Submissions must go beyond mere description in order to be considered for publication in Commentary and Criticism. Additional submissions of diverse formats, including ‘Social Thought and Commentary’ (<8000 words), Photo Essays (10 images and 3,000-6,000 words), and book reviews (1000-2000 words) will also be considered. Book reviews on topics related to death are especially encouraged from ECA and graduate students.
