The Asian Journal of Women’s Studies (AJWS) welcomes original contributions, which include research articles, review articles, and book reviews, from individuals and collectives of different backgrounds not merely in Asia but all over the world. AJWS, a forum on women in Asia, for women and men in Asia, and by feminists all over the world, is the first international academic journal in Women’s Studies in Korea published in English and the first social science journal in Korea included in the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI). It is also covered by Korea Citation Index (KCI), Alternative Press Index, Feminist Periodicals, Gender Watch, Iowa Guide, Scopus, and EBSCO.

As a multi-disciplinary international forum for the presentation of feminist scholarship and criticism in the fields of the humanities and the social sciences, AJWS was first published as an annual issue in 1995. Since 1997, AJWS has been circulated quarterly by the Asian Center for Women’s Studies at Ewha Womans University, Seoul, South Korea.

From its publication of Vol. 19, AJWS has been accepting short papers for the Voices from Asian Feminist Activism, a special corner created to capture individual or collective stories, narratives, and experiences of Asian activists, NGOs, and young scholars directly engaged in local activism and grassroots empowerment and emancipation programs for women, by women, through women, and with women.

Through this corner, AJWS seeks to provide a platform for theory building based on bold realities, model stories, and compelling challenges faced by women in contemporary Asian societies; to bridge the gap between scholarship of global knowledge and local knowledge; and to enrich women’s studies perspectives by providing an interface with feminist epistemologies from different locales and contexts of Asia. Submitted papers for this corner have to be shorter than the usual articles published in this journal. The papers undergo the same screening procedure and the authors are expected observe the same guidelines set forth by AJWS.

Submitted manuscripts must be in English, typed in double space, on A4 paper. Contributors are requested to send an electronic version in Microsoft Word by e-mail as an attachment. Manuscripts submitted will not be returned to the contributor. All authors receive two copies of the journal in which their contribution appears.
