GenderOpen: A Repository for Gender Studies Research
The primary purpose of the GenderOpen project, launched in October 2016, is to create an electronic platform on which Gender Studies publications and other sources of knowledge can be made permanently and freely accessible and stored for the long term. This will make it easier for researchers and other interested parties to find Gender Studies publications, view them in only a few clicks, and use them for their work. At the same time, it gives authors and opportunity to publicize their Gender Studies research findings, opening them up to more rapid and targeted academic attention. The GenderOpen repository was released on 4 December 2017.
The GenderOpen repository is a consortium project of the three university-based Gender Studies centers in Berlin. It was directed by Dr. Anita Runge, Margherita von Brentano Center, Freie Universität Berlin; Dr. Karin Aleksander, Center for Transdisciplinary Gender Studies at Humboldt Universität; and Prof. Sabine Hark, Center for Interdisciplinary Women’s and Gender Studies at Technische Universität. Other project partners are the Gender Studies Association (Gender e.V.); 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.
