Call for Papers: The Australian Feminist Law Journal
Deadline for Paper:
The Australian Feminist Law Journal is seeking articles for publication for the next General Issue of
the Journal, namely Volume 35, December 2011. The Journal seeks to focus upon scholarly research
using critical feminist approaches to law and justice, broadly conceived. As a critical legal journal we
publish research informed by critical theory, cultural and literary theory, jurisprudential, postcolonial
and psychoanalytic approaches, amongst other critical research practices. Articles may range from
longer, academic pieces from a critical perspective (which will be refereed) to shorter Praxis notes on
issues confronting women and men in their interactions with the law. The length of an article is
variable, but normally ranges from 8000 to 12,000 words. We particularly wish to encourage
interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary writing focusing on law. The AFLJ normally publishes a
General Issue and a Special themed Issue each year: in 2011 volume 35 will be the General Issue and
volume 36 of 2012 a Special Issue. Early submission of papers is welcomed.
Praxis notes normally have a focus upon a local practice, which will be of interest to readers. Praxis
notes are not normally refereed, although may be refereed at the request of an author and conditional
upon a considerable academic content of high standard. The length of a note is variable, and depends
upon the topicality and significance of the practice under scrutiny.
If you wish to discuss a proposed article or praxis note please contact the General Editor, Judith
Grbich, email Judith.Grbich@bigpond.com Articles should be submitted electronically to the
General Editor Judith Grbich.
The AFLJ has an A ranking under the ERA (Excellence in Research for Australia) initiative of
the Australian Research Council.
Refereeing of Articles
The Australian Feminist Law Journal referees all manuscripts submitted for publication as an article
and follows the double-blind refereeing procedure. Referees will be selected with expertise in the
authors area of scholarship. Authors are requested to place their name and affiliation on a separate
page, and eliminate any self-identifying citation of ones own work. The journal will not accept
manuscripts for consideration, which are already under consideration by another journal.
