The Journal

The Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies is the official publication of the Association for Middle East Women’s Studies. The first volume was published in 2005. This interdisciplinary journal advances Middle East gender, sexuality, and women’s studies through the contributions of academics, artists, and activists from around the globe in the interpretive social sciences and humanities. JMEWS is a venue for region-specific research informed by transnational feminist, gender, and sexuality scholarship. Editors encourage submission of work that employs historical, ethnographic, literary, textual, and visual analyses and methodologies. The editors are committed to formative, efficient, and double-blind peer review. JMEWS also includes book reviews, review essays (focused on art exhibits, panels of significance, films, two or more scholarly books, fiction, or state of the field), and dissertation abstracts that highlight theoretical innovation in region-focused gender and sexuality studies. A new section, “Third Space,” offers a forum for 500 to 2,000 word solicited and submitted artistic, intellectual, and activist interventions of relevance to the field.   The journal is published in three issues annually. Subscription includes membership in the Association for Middle East Women’s Studies. Acceptance of a manuscript in the Journal of Middle East Women’s Studies is contingent on first publication in JMEWS. Once an author submits a completed Duke University Press Publication Agreement, first publication in JMEWS is legally required. Third party requests to reprint JMEWS material may be submitted to Duke University Press.

JMEWS is indexed/abstracted in the following: EBSCO Current Abstracts, EBSCO Current Citations Express, EBSCO Education Research Complete, EBSCO Education Research Index, European Reference Index for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (ERIH Plus), Feminist Periodicals, Humanities Index, Index Islamicus, Index to Jewish Periodicals, Project Muse, ProQuest Genderwatch, ProQuest Research Library, Sociological Abstracts, Thomson Reuters Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences, Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports/Social Science Edition, Thomson Reuters Social Sciences Citation Index, Wilson Omnifile.
