JH has been published since 1974 and is known broadly as a classic among sexuality studies journals, and it continues to be highly respected among scholars in sexuality studies across the globe. It currently publishes 12 issues per year and will move to 14 issues annually beginning in 2017. Accepted manuscripts will be uploaded to the JH/Taylor & Francis website with DOI numbers prior to being published in the print version of the journal to provide maximum exposure.
