Website: Recognized as the leading international journal in women's studies, Signs has since 1975 been at the forefront of new directions in feminist scholarship.

Signs publishes pathbreaking articles of interdisciplinary interest addressing gender, race, culture, class, nation, and/or sexuality either as central focuses or as constitutive analytics; symposia engaging comparative, interdisciplinary perspectives from around the globe to analyze concepts and topics of import to feminist scholarship; retrospectives that track the growth and development of feminist scholarship, note transformations in key concepts and methodologies, and construct genealogies of feminist inquiry; and new directions essays, which provide an overview of the main themes, controversies, and approaches in recent scholarship in particular fields and introduce this work and its theoretical and conceptual innovations to an interdisciplinary audience. Special issue and symposia topics cover a broad range of geopolitical processes, conditions, and effects; cultural and social configurations; and scholarly and theoretical developments.

Signs challenges the boundaries of knowledge concerning women's and men's lives, gender relations, sexualities, raced and gendered practices, institutions, cultural productions, theoretical concepts and frameworks, and understandings of the past and present as well as possibilities for the future.
