It incorporates a diversity of feminist, anti-racist and critical identity, intersectional, transnational, and cultural studies approaches to a wide range of contemporary issues, topics, and knowledges. Atlantis is dedicated to the ongoing growth of knowledge in the field of Women's and Gender Studies, as well as to critical reflections on the field itself.

Searching for LGBTQ Peer Reviewed Journals/Articles

There is no commonly accepted criteria for a "LGBTQ peer review journal". A LGBTQ research article could be published in any one of thousands of scholarly journals. The best practical approach is to search for  any journal/article database with the key terms LGBTQ (or any constituent key LGBTQ word) in its title. Intersex (I) and Questioning (Q) are sometimes added.
