GenderOpen: A Repository for Gender Studies Research
The repository OpenGender is an Open Access research infrastructure where publications and other knowledge resources in gender research are made permanently freely accessible and sustainably secured. GenderOpen now provides over 2000 publications, most of which can also be freely reused.
The repository enables researchers and interested parties to find publications in the field of gender research, to view them with a few clicks and to work with them. It offers authors the opportunity to make their research results in the field of gender research publicly accessible and thus to bring them more quickly and more purposefully into the focus of scientific attention.
The GenderOpen-Repository is a joint project of the three university-based Gender Studies centers in Berlin. It was built as part of a DFG project (duration 1.10.2016 to 31.10.2019) and was launched on December 4, 2017. The DFG project was directed by Dr. Anita Runge, Margherita von Brentano Center at Freie Universität, Dr. Karin Aleksander, Center for Transdisciplinary Gender Studies at Humboldt Universität, and Prof. Dr. Sabine Hark, Center for Interdisciplinary Women’s and Gender Studies at Technische Universität. Today, the three institutions are jointly responsible for the regular operation of the repository.
Since 2022, the Berlin University Alliance has been funding the further development of the services. The project management is led by Dr. Heike Pantelmann, managing director of the Margherita von Brentano Center.
The repository cooperates with numerous project partners, including the Fachgesellschaft Geschlechterstudien, the META database project of the i.d.a.- umbrella association of German-language Women’s/Lesbian Archives, Libraries, and Documentation Sites, the Online Gender Glossary of Leipzig; the State Working Group of Women’s and Gender Studies Institutions in Lower Saxony; and the project Online Knowledge Portal of LGBTI Health and Social Participation at Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts; the Budrich Verlag, the transcript Verlag and the editorial staff of the journals Gender, femina politica, Freiburger Zeitschrift für GeschlechterStudien, and feministische Studien.
