  • Open Access Policy

    In response to the Tri-Agency Open Access Policy on Publications, IJFAB: International Journal of Feminist Approaches to Bioethics has developed a plan to ensure our authors are able to comply with the policy. There are two open access options allowed by the Tri-Agency, green and gold:

    Green Open Access
    Twelve (12) months after publication of the version of record (i.e., the article after copyediting, tagging, typesetting, etc.), the author may deposit a copy of the accepted article in their institutional repository with a DOI or direct link to the version of record. Please let us know when the deposit is made so that we can update our records.

    Gold Open Access
    At publication, the final version of record will become freely available on our primary platform, utpjournals.press. The Author Publication Charge is $3,000.

  • Author resources

    Please visit the IJFAB website for full submission guidelines: http://www.ijfab.org/style_guidelines.html

    Manucripts
    IJFAB publishes at least one open issue per year in addition to thematically framed special issues. See our CFP page for current calls for upcoming special issues. Please submit your manuscript in any of the categories listed below, and the Editorial Office will see that it is reviewed either for IJFAB's next open issue or for an appropriate special issue.

    • Essays are usually in the range of 8,000–10,000 words (roughly 32–40 manuscript pages). Shorter essays are also welcome, and longer essays will be considered at the discretion of the Editorial Office.
    • Conversations provide a forum for public dialogue on particular issues in bioethics. Scholars engaged in fruitful exchanges are encouraged to share them in the pages of IJFAB. The length of a conversation depends upon the topic and the number of participants. Please contact the Editorial Office with any inquiries or proposals.
    • Commentaries offer an opportunity for analysis of specific policy issues, legislation, court decisions, or other contemporary developments within bioethics. These are usually shorter than essays, but longer pieces on important topics will be considered.
    • Narratives can illuminate clinical practice and ethical thinking. IJFAB invites narratives that shed light on aspects of health, health care, or bioethics. Submissions for the section are usually shorter than articles, but do not have a specific page limit.

    All submissions are subject to triple anonymous peer review. The Editorial Office aims to return an initial decision to authors within eight weeks. Authors are frequently asked to revise and resubmit based on extensive reviewer comments. The Editorial Office aims to return a decision on revised papers within four to six weeks.

    Manuscripts submitted to IJFAB should not be under simultaneous consideration by any other journal, nor should they have been published elsewhere.

    Please direct all submissions by email to the Editorial Office at EditorialOffice@IJFAB.org.

    Reviews
    IJFAB's Reviews provide a critical introduction to recent works in or related to feminist bioethics. Reviews of a single monograph tend to range between 1,200–2,000 words, but may be longer at the discretion of the Editorial Office. We also invite longer Review Essays that consider two or more recent works on a single theme. Please send all suggestions and inquiries to our Book Review Editor, Katy Fulfer, at Fulfer@Hood.edu.

    All reviews are subject to internal review by the Editorial Office or members of the Editorial Board. Reviews should include neither a title nor an abstract. Review essays should include both. Otherwise please all of the guidelines for manuscript preparation under the Style Guide.
