Author Guidelines

Catalyst welcomes submissions of original essays and mixed media works into established domains of STS. The journal also welcome commentary on questions of pressing current relevance, and critical analyses of specific directions in the field with respect to their implications for established and developing avenues of feminist and critical approaches to systems of power and knowledge practices. We also welcome critical reflections from outside the STS field, especially from perspectives that are less commonly represented in existing STS scholarship.

Contributions will be considered from any relevant discipline, including history, literature, the arts, sociology, philosophy, bioethics, anthropology, psychology, feminism, linguistics, science studies, cultural studies, law, disability studies, art history, and visual studies.

Details on the style guide can be found under Section Policies; Catalyst is committed to the politics of access. Read more about how this has informed our style guide in the Mission Statement.

Special Section Proposals

Catalsyt does not publish special issues but welcomes submissions of concepts for special sections of issues. We note a few of the key protocols:
  • Themed sections in most cases should include an open CFP, and may not be limited to selected participants only.
  • A journal board member selected by the editorial board will be assigned to each special section accepted for consideration. 
  • All essays submitted, including those submitted with special themed sections, must pass through anonymous peer review before acceptance. Acceptance of a special themed section does not guarantee acceptance of articles proposed for it. 
Catalyst is not a for-profit entity. The journal does not provide funding for article or issue development.
