Located at the intersection of feminist theory and studies in religion, it welcomes contributions that explore a diversity of feminist theories, practices, cultures, and religions.

Women’s Studies International Forum
Women’s Studies International Forum (formerly Women’s Studies International Quarterly, established in 1978) is a bimonthly journal to aid the distribution and exchange of feminist research in the multidisciplinary, international area of women’s studies and in feminist research in other disciplines. The policy of the journal is to establish a feminist forum for discussion and debate.
The journal seeks to critique and reconceptualize existing knowledge, to examine and re-evaluate the manner in which knowledge is produced and distributed, and to assess the implications this has for women’s lives.
We seek contributions from people, individually or collectively, from different countries and different backgrounds, who are engaged in feminist research inside or outside formal educational institutions. We welcome a variety of approaches and resources through the whole range of disciplines: papers geared toward action-oriented research as well as those which address theoretical methodological issues; and we encourage historical reassessments of the lives and works of women. We urge all contributors both to acknowledge the cultural and social specifics of their particular approach, and to draw out these issues in their articles.
We also invite conference reports and announcements, calls for papers, notices of new publications and reports, contacts, etc., sent in by individuals or groups in the international feminist community.
This special issue is intended to provide a sustained examination of feminist perspectives on food as a site for the performance and regulation of masculinities. Existing feminist scholarship on food and eating has tended to focus on women’s experiences food preparation and consumption. While this has been an appropriate corrective to the historical marginalisation of women’s lives and experiences, much of this work tends to focus on food and eating as primarily feminine experience. The ways in which food operates as a site of masculine gender construction for both men and women has been largely neglected in the scholarship. More work is urgently needed that considers food and masculinities from global and international perspectives and which addresses the vectors of nationality, ethnicity, migration, class, age and sexuality. Contributions to this special issue will extend existing feminist work on gender, food and eating by examining masculinities as important sites through which meaning and power with respect to food are mobilised (and sometimes contested).

differences: A Journal of Feminist Cultural Studies first appeared in 1989 at the moment of a critical encounter—a head-on collision, one might say—of theories of difference (primarily Continental) and the politics of diversity (primarily American). In the ensuing years, the journal has established a critical forum where the problematic of differences is explored in texts ranging from the literary and the visual to the political and social. differences highlights theoretical debates across the disciplines that address the ways concepts and categories of difference—notably but not exclusively gender—operate within culture.

University use this kind of thing to measure value of individuals based upon where they publish. As a librarian I always squirm when I’m asked that question, but many academics accept the “Impact Factor” from ISI’s Web of Science. this is based upon a counting of the total cites made to particular journals from articles published in the already identified top journals.
I just did a search of the Journal Impact factor of the Social Sciences part of the Journal Citation Reports (our library subscribes to this) and here is what came up: If you go by what journals received the top numbers of cited referenced - here are the top 5
1. Sex roles
3. Psychology of Women Quarterly
4.Gender and Society
5. Women’s Health
Now if I ask for the Impact Factor (I’ll copy their definition of impact
factor into this message after the next list)
1. Journal of Women’s Health
2. Gender and Society
3. Women’s Health
4. Psychology of Women’s Quarterly
6. Women’s Health Issues
(Signs is number 8 and Sex Roles 10)
Citation counts. The formal acknowledgment of intellectual debt to previously-published research, publicly recorded in the references listed by contemporary authors.
Total citations (listed in the Total Cites column in the Journal Rankings Window) indicates the total number of times that each journal has been cited by all journals included in the ISI database within the current product year. Compiling total citations. Citations to journals listed in the JCR are compiled annually from the current year’s combined database, regardless of which JCR edition lists the journal and regardless of what kind of article was cited or when the cited article was published. Each unique article-to-article link is counted as a citation. For example, a single article may give 40 references, but if only 35 different articles are cited in those 40 references, it is the 35 unique citations that are distributed among the cited journals.
The journal impact factor is a measure of the frequency with which the “average article” in a journal has been cited in a particular year. The impact factor will help you evaluate a journal’s relative importance, especially when you compare it to others in the same field.
The impact factor is calculated by dividing the number of current citations to articles published in the two previous years by the total number of articles published in the two previous years.
Now there is a new company out claiming to have better data about tracking cited references and journal importance that excludes book reviews from their listings, but I have heard complaints from faculty about their methodology.@2 years ago with 4 notes
