International Journal of Gender, Science and Technology

Found this on a list...

The International Journal of Gender, Science and Technology is an
independent, peer reviewed, open access journal that welcomes
contributions from practitioners, researchers and policy makers
concerned with gender issues in and of science and technology. The
phrase gender, science and technology intends to encompass a wide
definition of these disciplines both in terms of methodological enquiry
as well as subjects of research.

Our aim is to help foster and provide a focus for constructive debate
and interchange of ideas between key players and experts in this field.
We are interested in sharing knowledge and new understandings in
relation to policy development, analysis of challenges and responses in
education and employment, critical insights from companies,
professional societies and other organisations about the impact of
gender equality strategies, as well as perspectives from science and
technology studies - and other related issues. We welcome contributions
from a variety of disciplines and interdisciplinary perspectives and
drawing on a wide range of theoretical frameworks.

We are currently inviting submissions in the form of
· Full empirical research and theoretical papers
· Practitioner case studies and reports
· Opinions and perspectives from policy-makers and industry
For further information, including details of the submission process:

Any enquiries please contact Dr Jenni Carr - IJGST Project Officer
(j.g.carr@open.ac.uk)
The first issue will be published online in July 2009 (latest
submission for this issue is April 30th)
Further issues will appear every 4 months. We look forward to hearing
from you!
