Advisory Board

The working paper series aims to showcase the current state of gender studies in various disciplines and make its diversity visible. Especially early career researchers in gender and queer studies receive professional support in publishing their work.

The Advisory Board holds a pertinent role in supporting junior scholars in gender studies. On the one hand, it consists of experts in the areas of academic publishing, promotion of early career researchers, and digitisation. On the other hand, it includes academic experts in the field who support the editors-in-chief with content-related questions, the review process, and the commentaries. In this way, the Advisory Board assures the technical and professional quality, as well as the institutional integration and strategic development of gender<ed> thoughts.
