Gender, Place & Culture: A Journal of Feminist Geography is a peer-reviewed journal published 12 times a year by Taylor and Francis to provide "a forum for debate in human geography and related disciplines on theoretically-informed research concerned with gender issues."[1]

Abstracting and indexing[edit]

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2015 impact factor of 1.180, ranking it 13th out of 40 journals in the category "Women's Studies".[3]


In 2018 the journal was the target of a scholarly publishing sting, in which a hoax paper titled "Human Reactions to Rape Culture and Queer Performativity in Urban Dog Parks in Portland, Oregon" was reviewed enthusiastically and accepted. The paper proposed that men should be "trained like we do dogs to prevent rape culture".[4][5][6][7] Furthermore, the paper was recognized as exemplary scholarship in feminist geography by the journal on May 7, 2018, and was set to be honored as such as a part of their 25th anniversary celebration until doubts about its authorship surfaced.[4]
