It took a little bit of digging but I was able to find a couple of different journals that look at family studies and/or queer studies. Only one was based in the United States. The other three were out of Canada, Finland, and Australia. Even the journals from international locations have editors from more than one country (even the U.S.) including some of the top people in the field.

All of the journals are peer-reviewed and all indicate a dedication to presenting strong research. Many of them are also interdisciplinary in nature, partly due to the topics discussed don’t solely get studied in one department.

Even when discussing being open access, they say how they support academic pursuits and desire to ensure the validity and reliability of research. Part of why the journals are open access is to make what is being studied more visible.
