  • Global Journal of Women Studies is a semiannually peer-reviewed journal that publishes innovative research related to women empowerment and their entrepreneurial role in the society. The journal seeks to critique and tg existing knowledge, to examine and re-evaluate the manner in which knowledge is produced and distributed, and to assess the implications this has for women's lives. We seek contributions from people, individually or collectively, from different countries and different backgrounds, who are engaged in feminist research inside or outside formal educational institutions.

    Criteria for Publication

    To be published in GJWS, a manuscript must make strong theoretical and empirical contributions to the field of engineering and technology. Authors interested in publishing with GJWS should strive to produce original, interesting, valuable, insightful, and important research. The acceptance of article for publication in GJWS highly depends upon the originality, value, importance, and significance of your research. Submissions that do not offer strong theoretical or empirical contribution will not be reviewed.
    Each submitted manuscript would be assigned to action editor for evaluation. The action editor will decide whether to forward the manuscript to the reviewers. Typically, papers should be no longer than 40 double-spaced pages (using one-inch margins, left aligned, and Times New Roman 12-point font) including references, tables, figures, and appendixes.

    Submission Requirements

    Before submitting a manuscript to GJWS, the authors must make sure and confirm that
    i. Their manuscript has not already been published elsewhere, is not under review for publication elsewhere and will not be submitted to any other journal during the review period at GJWS. Articles presented and published in the proceedings of any academic conferences or workshops will be considered for publication in GJWS.
    ii. Their manuscript has not previously been submitted to GJWS for review.
    iii. The working papers or prior drafts of submitted manuscript that are posted on a website (e.g. Personal, Departmental, University, Organizational) or a database will be taken down during the review process.

    Peer Review Process and Time

    Global Journal of Women Studies (GJWS) operates a strictly anonymous peer-review process in which the reviewers’ names are withheld from the author(s) and, the authors’ name from the reviewer.

    Desk Review: On receiving a manuscript, the editor conducts a preliminary screening to assess the degree to which the manuscript fits the criteria in GJWS ‘Aims and Scope’. Submissions that fail to satisfy our criteria may be returned to the authors either as a desk reject or desk edit. In case of desk edit, the authors are asked to edit the manuscript and then resubmit.

    Review process: For each manuscript that passes the desk review, the editor assigns an action editor (either him- or herself or an associate editor or a guest editor) and two reviewers. The manuscript’s action editor sends the manuscript for review to two reviewers who are specialists in their fields. After receiving the reviewers’ comments on the manuscript, the action editor makes publication decisions about it. However, these decisions are made in conjunction with recommendations provided by the reviewers. All submission are blind reviewed; manuscripts prepared in a way that compromises blind review may be returned for revision prior to being submitted to the reviewers.

    Review Time: The journal strives to provide developmental and constructive feedback to authors within approximately five weeks. The peer-review process usually takes four weeks depending upon the manuscript size and availability of the editorial members. However, the initial quality of the manuscript can dramatically influence both the efficiency and effectiveness of review process. The better developed a manuscript and the ideas it contains, the easier it will be to review, and provide timely feedback to authors. We therefore encourage authors to ask scholarly colleagues to review their work prior to submission to the GJWS. The Guidelines for Reviewers can be viewed here. The submission made to the conferences organized by Taf Publishing generally do not go through peer-review process because the submission made to Taf Publishing conferences already go through a rigorous review process. For manuscripts already presented at Taf Publishing conferences, the action editor usually makes a decision for possible acceptance, rejection or revision.


    The in-text Citations, Tables, Figures/Images, References, and Appendixes. Manuscripts that do not commensurate with the formatting guidelines may be returned by the action editor to the authors for revision prior to submission to the full review process.
    All submission are required to be formatted according to the guidelines available here.
