Manuscripts are accepted for consideration with the understanding that they are original material and are not under consideration for publication elsewhere.

One hard copy and an electronic copy should be submitted in Office type word processors like Word and Word Perfect.  Author's name, affiliation, e-mail address, and telephone/fax numbers should be on a separate cover page, and only on this page.   An abstract of 100-120 words and keywords should be on a separate page.  All figures must be camera ready.  Manuscripts that do not conform to these specifications will be returned to the author for proper style change.  The review process normally takes 3-6 months.   

Submissions must be in plain text and references and citations must be consistent with the American Psychological Association style.  

For example:

  1. Journal article:  Belkhir, J.A.  (1995).  Multicultural education:  Race, gender & class. Rethinking the introductory textbook in the academic disciplines. Race, Gender & Class, 2(2):11-37.

  2. Book:   Sleeter, C.E., &  Grant, C.A.  (1994).  Making choices for multicultural education:  Fives approaches to race, class, and gender.  NY:  Macmillan Publishing Company; 

  3. Article or chapter in an edited book:  Belkhir, J.A.  (1997).  Race, gender, and class definition.  In C. Grant and G. Ladson-Billings (Eds.), Dictionary of multicultural education.  The Oryx Press.   

Race, Gender & Class publishes articles of 15-25 pages, notes of 5-10 pages, review essays on books or films, autobiographies, essays, data sets, theories, stories, field work studies, and letters to the journal promoting interdisciplinary and multicultural studies focusing on race, gender and class intersection issues in society.

We are interested by papers without footnotes, and which cut through the technical jargon commonly used in academic writing, and promoting interdisciplinary understanding. Three members or non-members of the journal Race, Gender & Class will review manuscripts.  Reviewers are given the option of signing their comments, but the author's name will not be revealed to the reviewer. We request that rewievers respond promptly within 14 days of receipt of the manuscript. Reviewers are asked to approach their task in a helpful and supportive way working with the author to produce a publishable article if at all possible.  Keep in mind that an efficient editorial process that results in timely publication provides a valuable service both for authors and the journal at large.
