  • Submit manuscripts online at www.editorialmanager.com/glq. Our response time is generally six to eight months. Do not submit previously published articles without the permission of the editors. Do not simultaneously offer your article to another publication. All lines should be double-spaced (including lines in the notes), with 1.5-inch left and right margins. Articles should not exceed 12,000 words. To maintain anonymity in the review process, put names, affiliations, and mailing addresses, along with the article’s title and abstract, on a separate title page. Citations to an author's own works should be made in a way that does not compromise anonymity. GLQ uses The Chicago Manual of Style, seventeenth edition, as its main reference. Articles use a reference list and in-text author-date citations for documentation. Follow Chicago, chapter 15, for the form of all citations. Send correspondence to glq-editor@dukeupress.edu. When preparing an article for submission, please refer to the journal's style guide.

    GLQ does not accept unsolicited book or film/video reviews. Reviews are edited in cooperation with the GL/Q Caucus for the Modern Languages, an affiliate organization of the MLA.

  • Description

    Providing a much-needed forum for interdisciplinary discussion, GLQ publishes scholarship, criticism, and commentary in areas as diverse as law, science studies, religion, political science, and literary studies. Its aim is to offer queer perspectives on all issues touching on sex and sexuality.

    In an effort to achieve the widest possible historical, geographic, and cultural scope, GLQ particularly seeks out new research into historical periods before the twentieth century, into non-Anglophone cultures, and into the experience of those who have been marginalized by race, ethnicity, age, social class, body morphology, or sexual practice. A notable feature is "The GLQ Archive," a special section featuring previously unpublished or unavailable primary materials that may serve as sources for future work in lesbian and gay studies.

    GLQ has expanded to include Lesbian and Gay Studies Newsletter book reviews and calls for papers, and members of the GL/Q Caucus for the Modern Languages now receive a subscription to GLQ as part of their membership dues.

    Read a recent interview with editor Marcia Ochoa about future research directions for GLQ.
