Journal of Sex Research
Aims and Scope
The Journal of Sex Research (JSR) is a scholarly journal devoted to the publication of articles relevant to the variety of disciplines involved in the scientific study of sexuality. JSR is designed to stimulate research and promote an interdisciplinary understanding of the diverse topics in contemporary sexual science. JSR publishes empirical reports, theoretical essays, literature reviews, methodological articles, historical articles, teaching papers, book reviews, and letters to the editor. JSR actively seeks submissions from researchers outside of North America. The JSR audience is researchers and practitioners in the fields of psychology, sociology, education, psychiatry, communication, and allied health. JSR can be found by accessing the Taylor and Francis Publishing website at http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/journal.asp?issn=0022-4499&linktype=44
2013 Impact Factor: 2.73 (Journal Citation Reports, Thomson Reuters.®)
Information for Contributors
JSR uses an online submission and review system, ScholarOne, through which authors submit manuscripts and track their progress up until acceptance for publication. Please log on to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/sex for information and instructions regarding registration and manuscript submission. Authors will enter pertinent information into the system and submit the following files: (a) cover letter file (see description below); (b) title page file that includes authors’ names, affiliations (institutional and departmental), and addresses, e-mail, fax, and phone numbers of the corresponding author, as well as 4-5 key words, and any acknowledgments. When uploading this file, select the ‘‘Title Page and Acknowledgments’’ File Designation from the drop-down menu; (c) main document file (Word format), including the abstract, all text, references, footnotes, and appendixes; (c) figures and tables, which should be submitted as separate files. Please do not submit PDF files. As part of the submission process, authors will also be asked to provide a suggested running head (an abbreviated title) that should not exceed 50 characters including spaces.
Because an anonymous peer review system is employed, please ensure that manuscripts have been properly blinded; author names and affiliations and acknowledgments should not appear anywhere in the main document file. Author names and affiliations are entered in a separate section in the online system for submission of manuscripts.
The cover letter should include the following information: (a) a description of the ethical review process employed by the authors; (b) a statement that the manuscript has not been published and is not currently under consideration elsewhere. If the data has been published in some form elsewhere, the authors should indicate how the content of the submitted manuscript provides new information not available in previously published articles written by the authors.
Authors are responsible for all statements made in their work and for obtaining permission from copyright owners to reprint or adapt a table or figure or to reprint quotations from one source exceeding the limits of fair use. Authors should write to both the author(s) and the publishers of such material to request nonexclusive world rights in all languages for use in the article and in future editions of it.
All inquiries regarding journal policy, manuscript preparation, and submission should be sent to preparation/submission should be sent to the Editor.
Manuscripts should be prepared according to the guidelines in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th. ed.). Prior to submission, please review the APA submission guidelines carefully. Manuscripts that do not conform to APA guidelines may be returned to the author(s).
Although there is no maximum word length, a typical article accepted for publication will not exceed 35 double-spaced pages, including references and any tables/figures. The title should consist of 30 or fewer words and should identify the major variables investigated in the research. An abstract of 200 or fewer words is required for all papers submitted.
Guidelines and free tutorials on APA style can be found at www.apastyle.org. This website also contains guidelines on the use of unbiased language and terms related to gender and sexual orientation; see http://www.apastyle.org/manual/supplement/index.aspx
