- Guidelines for Contributors
The article for consideration should be sent to Saskia Bultman, secretary, Yearbook of Women’s History, by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. It should include
- word count (including notes);
- abstract of 150 words;
- list of illustrations and small jpgs of each illustration (note that the final figures must be 300 dpi or more). Please note that authors are responsible for securing permission to reproduce quoted material and all illustrations;
- biography of 100 words max including your institutional address.
- The Yearbook does not publish previously published material except in translation or as source documents.
- The Yearbook is a peer-reviewed journal and articles considered for publication are read by specialist readers, as well as by the editor.
- The Yearbook aims to inform potential contributors of a decision within three to four weeks of their submission. All submitted articles are read by at least two readers, one of whom is the editor.
- Decisions by the editor are final.
- Once accepted, the article will be published in the same calendar year.
- The editors reserve the right to edit the texts received. Any substantial changes will be made in consultation with the author.
- Once accepted for publication, the author must agree to undertake any revisions and to deliver a final copy to the editor by a mutually agreed date.
- All articles accepted for publication will be sent to the author at the proof stage.
- Authors are expected to correct page proofs; these must be returned to the editor within ten days of receipt.
- No material changes may be made at proof stage; typographical errors must be corrected.
- Contributors are advised that as the journal has no income, either from readers or contributors, it does not employ professional copy-editors and proof-readers. Authors themselves are ultimately responsible for the quality of their own texts. Authors using English as a second language are advised to have their submissions checked by a native English speaker before submitting them.
Length and Format

- Style Guidance
- Authors should be consistent in format and style.
- Style should be clear and accessible, avoiding jargon. Authors should state the context of their work, its place in the existing field of study, and identify individuals and specialist references.
- British English spelling and punctuation conventions should be followed in the text and notes. Oxford spelling rules apply (this requires the use of ”z” rather than ”s” in such words as “organize”; exceptions may be found here: http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/words/ize-ise-or-yse). Foreign language citations should be given in translation in the main text, with the original appearing in full in an accompanying footnote. MS Word enables spelling language to be specified.
- Please avoid turns of phrase that are not acceptable (such as masculine forms as universals); please also avoid acronyms.
- Please avoid personal pronouns, we, our, us and you.
- A person’s full name should be given on first appearance no matter how famous, for example, William Gunn or Henry Moore not Gunn or Moore until second mention.
- Use headings and subheadings in normal typeface.
- Quotations: use normal typeface between ‘single quotation marks’. When leaving out parts from a quote ‘indicate this as follows […] and finish the quote.’ Always reference the first quotation in a note. By subsequent quoting of the same text in one paragraph you can refer to pages as follows:
And she also said: ‘he died on a sunny day’(5).
- For quotes of more than three lines use a tab.
- English word breaks according to the Oxford method.
