Guidelines for Special Issue Submissions
Fembot periodically publishes special issues of Ada, edited or co-edited by members of the Fembot Collective.
Members who are interested in submitting a proposal for a special issue should review previous issues prior to submitting, to ensure that the proposed issue covers new ground. Special issues should not be conference proceedings or invited contributions. Contributions must be solicited through a well-publicized call for papers. All contributions will be reviewed on Ada’s peer review system.
Proposals for special issues should be submitted to the Ada co-editors. They should include:
- Names, affiliations, and contact information for proposed editor(s)
- Title of proposed issue
- Abstract for proposed issue (no more than 250 words)
- Rationale for proposed issue, including its appropriateness for Ada and its contribution to the field of feminist media studies (no more than 1,000 words)
- Plan for soliciting contributions
- Time line for proposed issue.
Proposals will be evaluated by the Ada co-editors who will make recommendations to the Fembot Advisory Board.
The evaluation criteria include:
1] Fit with Fembot and Ada goals and objectives
2] Special issue’s suitability for publication in an online journal
3] Special issue’s contribution to the field.
