About the Journal

Focus and Scope

The focus of the AWL Journal, the longest-running, continuous journal on women's leadership issues, is to publish peer-reviewed quantitative and qualitative research, literature critiques, and position papers related to women's leadership issues or gender equity in national and international contexts.

Peer Review Process

The AWL Journal includes peer-reviewed articles. Typically, the peer-review process ranges from one to two months. The time depends on availabilty of the Review Board members. Additionally, there may be times when the Editors must seek a specialized reviewer; that is the point when the process may be extended.
