Call for Papers: U.S.-Japan Women’s Journal

Established in 1988, the U.S.-Japan Women’s Journal (USJWJ) is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, biannual publication available in print and online that promotes scholarly exchange on social, cultural, political, and economic issues pertaining to gender and Japan. We encourage comparative study among Japan, the United States, and other countries. We welcome contributions from all academic fields in the humanities and social sciences and proposals for special issues. Our mission is to foster the work of young researchers and to make sure the achievements of established scholars are not forgotten.
Manuscripts should be between 6,000-10,000 words (including references and notes). Submissions will be reviewed by the USJWJ editors and anonymously by outside reviewers. For more information, submission guidelines, and the USJWJ Style Guide, please see our website

Submissions are accepted anytime on a rolling basis, but manuscripts received before November 30, 2017 may be considered for publication in our Spring 2018 issue (no. 53).
