Submission Guidelines

General Guidelines for Authors:

For the “Articles” section, Kohl considers unpublished manuscripts of research that critically engage with existing literature and theories.

For other sections, Kohl considers opinion pieces, testimonies, commentaries, conversations, interviews, literary pieces, creative pieces, and audiovisual material that contribute to a body of feminist knowledge in local platforms.

The submitted manuscripts and pieces should not be under consideration at another publication platform, nor should they be submitted simultaneously to another journal. Our journal welcomes work in progress, with a word count of 4000-8000 words for research articles, and 1000-4000 for all other pieces.

Following a selection by our editorial board, all of the pre-selected manuscripts of research are subjected to a blind peer review process. Our team works closely with the authors of the pieces accepted for inclusion via Skype and e-mail.

Authors also have the option to send their manuscripts and pieces to the Kohl team before formal submission and peer review for comments and feedback. They can do so at least a month before the deadline of the call for papers they would like to submit to, and by e-mailing us a draft at
