We ask that interested authors submit a proposal/abstract (<400 words). Articles are reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis. Please note that all articles are conditionally accepted based on whether the full piece is consistent with the ACM-W mission, publication guidelines, and editorial review. Published articles generally range from 2,000 to 5,000 words and include several related photos or graphics. Articles with references should use the APA style.
