Aims & Scope

The Working Paper Series gender<ed> thoughts is an innovative scholarly platform for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary discourse that contributes to current theoretical, empirical and methodological debates of gender studies (gender thoughts) and reflects the individual and societal significance of gender in everyday life (gendered thoughts).

gender <ed> thoughts aims to present the current status of gender studies in various disciplines, making visible its diversity. The Working Paper Series, therefore, is directed specifically at junior scholars in gender and queer studies to support them to produce professional academic publications. Gender<ed> thoughts targets young researchers giving them a chance to publish their research results. Primary addressees of the series are students, doctoral candidates and post doctoral fellows.

Possible contributions include findings from research projects, excerpts from theses, discussions of theoretical approaches and systematic literature reviews, given that they provide advances in knowledge.

After an initial viewing by the editorial team, each article goes through a pre-structured, double-blind peer review process and is then commented on by a suited academic.
