Introducing the new Editors of the European Journal of Politics and Gender

We are pleased to introduce the new Co-Lead Editors of the European Journal of Politics and Gender: Professor Phillip Ayoub of University College London, UK and Professor Jennifer Piscopo of Royal Holloway University of London, UK.

The European Journal of Politics and Gender is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes international, cutting-edge research in the broad field of politics and gender. EJPG is firmly embedded in global politics and gender scholarship; its scope is not limited to Europe. It aims to advance gender and politics research in all its diversity.

“We are so excited to lead the European Journal of Politics and Gender. Our vision is straightforward: to publish cutting-edge, topical, and timely research on gender and politics. In doing so, we will showcase the diversity of approaches, emphases, methods, and traditions that, taken together, reflect the dynamism and creativity of the field.
We will step-up promotion of the journal and encourage submission from scholars working on gender, sexuality, and intersectionality in all areas of political science, politics, and adjacent fields; at all career stages; using all methodologies; and in the Global South and Global North.”

The new team is also considering a variety of new initiatives, including:

  • Exploring models for changing our word-count limits to enhance submissions and ensure best citation practices
  • Soliciting articles for themed sections and special issues that address critical topics in the field
  • Developing a “how to” guide that can assist scholars from underrepresented groups and in underrepresented regions to be more successful upon first submission
  • Expanding the breadth of and enhancing opportunities to contribute to the gender updates section;
  • Increasing submissions and fine-tuning processes to maintain the journal’s commitment to timely turnarounds that deliver useful and supportive reviews.

Professor Ayoub and Professor Piscopo are joined by a team of Associate Editors with a wide range of expertise and global networks: Dr Elin Bjarnegård, Uppsala University, Sweden; Dr Jaimie Bleck University of Notre Dame, USA; Dr Deondra Rose, Duke University, USA; and Dr Stuart J Turnbull-Dugarte, University of Southampton, UK.
