About the Journal

Idaho's Women of Influence is meant to correct an imbalance in the preserved historical data on women's contribution to Idaho history. Both a database of important women in the history of the state of Idaho and the home for a peer-reviewed scholarly journal on the same topic, Idaho's Women of Infuence is open to all women connected to Idaho by birth, residence, work, or any other significant factor whose positive efforts and accomplishments contributed significantly to the quality of life in their community, the state, or the world. 

Database entries may be submitted online by librarians, educators, museum staff, tribal authorities, women's organizations, or others with recognizable positions, credentials, or knowledge. Each entry must be accompanied by one to five published or otherwise publically available sources of information. Contributors to the database are also encouraged to create or update wikipedia articles on the women as well.

Once an editorial board is in place, longer articles may be submitted for review.
