About the Journal

The Bulletin of Applied Transgender Studies (BATS) offers a platinum open access forum for research of all theoretical and methodological approaches oriented toward the identification, analysis, and improvement of the material conditions of transgender life.

Aims and Scope

BATS publishes timely research focused on identifiable and pragmatic social, cultural, and political issues of relevance to transgender people, both at the individual and collective level. The journal welcomes research from diverse theoretical and methodological approaches, and from all contextual areas. However, research that is focussed on biomedical aspects of clinical practice with transgender patients is not appropriate for BATS; for such research, we refer prospective authors to the International Journal of Transgender Health and Transgender Health. The journal will consider biomedical and/or health research with primarily social, cultural, and/or political implications (e.g., health communication, health and human rights, public health policy, etc.).

BATS is committed to publishing research oriented toward the identification, analysis, and, ultimately, improvement of the material conditions of transgender life. To that end, published articles should clearly address both academic and nonacademic publics, and they should clearly present both the theoretical and the practical implications drawn from the research. Moreover, articles should be written in widely accessible language, free of field-specific jargon and unnecessarily technical language.

Peer Review

BATS uses a double-blind peer review process. This means that the reviewers of a submission will at no point in the review process be made aware of who authored the submission. Likewise, the author(s) of a submission will at no point in time be made aware of who reviewed the submission.
