Focus & Scopes
The Journal of women’s studies is an international peer-reviewed journal focused on women’s studies research and its sociological, economic, social, philosophical and political aspects. The academia, researchers, professionals, and scholars engaged in women’s studies are the main audience of this journal. The JARWS journal raises questions and provides responses to the research and practice in the area of interdisciplinary study of how intersectionality of gender, race, age, class, nationality, ethnicity, ability, sexuality, and other differences impact almost every facet of the social, political, and cultural experience.
Women's studies which also examine how the lives of individual women are shaped by broader structural forces in both historical and contemporary contexts, for e.g., nation building, globalization, economic developments, and the legal system can be addressed in submissions. Furthermore, the Journal also aims to bring out the research and works done by women studies scholars who have adopted an approach to abortion rights, first-wave feminism, radical feminism, adoption rights, marriage, same-sex parenting, stereotypes, transgender, transsexuals and all discussions of women, gender, sexuality, and nonbinary.
Qualitative and quantitative studies or interdisciplinary researches applied mixed methods sharing the same goal of improving worldwide women’s studies are invited for submission. Research should be both practical and theoretical with implications for policy and practice. Each research work will be primarily reviewed by the editors and then will undergo a double-blind peer-review to ensure publication of in-depth thorough research.
