Manuscript Submission Guidelines:
The aim of Advances in Gender and Education is to publish current and scholarly articles
on gender and education. The journal welcomes publications that use student-centered
data as well as quantitative data. Papers that combine qualitative and quantitative data
are highly encouraged to be submitted.
Papers that are accepted for this journal need to have at least two of these qualifications:
1. Combine quantitative and qualitative data.
2. Take a systematic qualitative or ethnographic approach.
3. Use an original and creative methodological approach.
4. Present new theoretical or conceptual ideas.
In order to be considered for publication, papers must be submitted with a cover letter
clearly outlining how the paper addresses at least two of the qualifications.
In addition to journal articles, Advances in Gender and Education publishes
scholarly essays, which are short pieces (2,000 words or less) in which an author presents
ideas that may have limited empirical support, but inspire new thinking and research.
Some essays may provide a thoughtful critique of a research area while making
constructive suggestions for new ways of approaching it. Writers interested in writing
and submitting an essay should contact the editor first to confirm the appropriateness of
the proposed topic.
The journal accepts ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS ONLY. Manuscripts should be

submitting manuscripts to the journal should not simultaneously submit them to another
