VIDA welcomes contributions by scholars at all stages of their careers, within and beyond the academy. We accept submissions based on research in feminist, gender, or women’s history, not limited to Australia. Submissions should be around 1000 words in an accessible and conversational style.
Blog posts can be used to explore new research material or a case-study from work in progress, or be employed to promote an existing book or journal article by presenting your findings in a condensed form. VIDA will also solicit particular content from individuals on issues to be dealt with as part of an ongoing series.
Authors should aim to provide one open access image to accompany their post, for example, search Wikimedia Commons or Trove’s open access images (if this is not possible please enquire further). Hyperlinks should be used for references from both academic and popular sources.
If you are interested in sharing your research online, please contact Managing Editors Alana Piper and Ana Stevenson at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or submissions.
