Call for Editors-in-Chief: Gender‹ed› Thoughts – Working Paper Series of the Göttingen Centre for Gender Research is searching new members for its editorial board!

We, Christoph Behrens, Solveig Lena Hansen, Maximiliane Hädicke, and Susanne Hofmann, the editors of the Working Paper Series Gender <ed> Thoughts are looking to augment our editorial team. Suitable candidates will have experience in academic writing and publishing, but above all have a passion for gender research and the motivation to support junior researchers in their academic writing. Experience in using social media and/or knowledge of Open Access Publishing is desirable. To complete our profile, we are currently looking in particular for people with a disciplinary background in:


·        History

·        STEM (Science, technology, engineering, mathematics)

·        Medicine

Within the editorial team, we explicitly strive for diversity and therefore particularly welcome applications from people from currently unrepresented groups, including people with disabilities, PoC and people with a migration background.


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 has set itself the task of presenting the current state of gender studies in various disciplines and making its diversity visible. Young researchers in gender and queer studies are given discipline-specific academic guidance, supporting their professional development. The Working Paper Series targets particularly junior scholars, 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 on special topics.

The editors-in-chief preselect submitted papers, which then undergo an anonymous peer review process, ensuring their academic quality. Contributions are published continuously throughout the year in German or English. The papers are published Open Access and free of charge under the Creative Commons License CC-BY-SA 4.0.

Editors-in-Chief are responsible for the scope of the Working Paper Series, support of authors and organisation of the peer review, funding applications, and both national and international networking of the series.

If you are interested in joining the editorial board, please send a cover letter detailing your motivation and any relevant experience and expertise, including a CV to genderedthoughts(at) by October 31st, 2021.
