Main articles word limit returns to 9000 words (all inclusive).
The Editors and publishers have been working to balance the length of published articles with the timeliness of publication and Gender, Place and Culture is now in a position to increase the word limit to 9000 words.
Main articles should be consistent with the aims of Gender, Place and Culture as expressed on the aims and scopes page, and be approximately 3000-9000 words in length inclusive of all text (i.e. abstract/tables/references/figure captions/footnotes/endnotes). 9000 is a word limit rather than a requirement; we also welcome shorter papers. Viewpoint articles (maximum 3000 words) or editorials (maximum 2000 words) should not contain original research, but be critically engaging. Themed section articles have a word limit of 7000 words.
