NORA: Call for papers
NORA: Nordic Journal for Feminist and Gender Research welcomes submissions that partake in, or reflect, Nordic discussions and research interests within the interdisciplinary field of feminist and gender research. Empirical and thematic, theoretical or more conceptual articles are all welcomed, as are open letters, position papers, book reviews and review articles which set several recent books within the context of past or ongoing debates.
Submitted manuscripts must be written in an academic English of international standard in order to be considered for review. British spelling is to be used except in the case of words where ‘z' has generally replaced the ‘s', as in the case of ‘organize¿. The preferred length of a scientific, original article is 7-8000 words including notes and references. All articles submitted should be accompanied by an abstract of 150-200 words, and up to 5 key words.
NORA only accepts electronic submission of manuscripts. All submissions should be made online at the NORA ScholarOne Manuscripts site:
For the double blind peer review process to work, the name, or names, of the author(s), must only appear on a separate title page. The separate title page should also include a short biography of the author(s) and indicate the name of the corresponding author for the submitted manuscript.
NORA also publishes shorter essays, position papers, book reviews and book review essays.
Taking Turns: A new format for NORA, “Taking Turns” (ca 3500 words) is an open forum for brief commentaries on changes emerging in or around the field, and its discontents. As a shorter kind of positioning paper, Taking Turns offers a possibility to initiate and respond to ongoing discussions in the field of feminist and gender studies. In this new series, we invite Nordic as well as non-Nordic scholars to present their take on contemporary challenges for feminist scholarship and gender research. The name is of course a pun on both various “turns” within feminist theory, like the linguistic turn or the material turn. However, in line with the 1970’s feminist method of dialogue in larger heterogeneous groups, it also signifies a possibility for feminist scholars and gender researchers to take turns in expressing positions and perspectives in the multi-headed choir that is our unruly field of expertise. We hope the series Taking Turns for shorter communications will also be indicative of how feminist researchers assess or adopt, initiate or embody, changes taking place.
