The Dutch language journal Tijdschrift voor Genderstudies is a forum for the scientific problematisation of gender in relation to ethnicity, sexuality, class, and age. The journal aims to contribute to science and appropriate interventions in debates about gender and diversity in the Netherlands and Flanders. It is an interdisciplinary medium operating at the intersection of society, culture, the humanities, health and science. The editorial staff is open to articles about gender issues from different disciplines, and also accepts English articles. As well as research articles, the journal includes essays, columns (short topical and polemical articles), interviews, reviews, summaries of dissertations and conference reports.
Articles are subjected to a double blind peer review process.
‘Open Science’ is a movement that strives for open sharing of research data, publications, code, and other research related products with society. This is intended to enhance the transparency of knowledge production and stimulate the circulation of knowledge within and outside academia. Open access publishing, where the published article is freely available for everyone, is a well-known offshoot of the open science movement. But, its branches extend much further: to the publication and/or sharing of data, and alternative forms of peer review that are more transparent (i.e. ‘open’), among other things. It has been argued that that open science practices could make scholarship more democratic, encourage civil engagement, and increase participation of marginalised groups.
In this special issue we ask the question: how are current practices and policies aimed at openness related to the position of marginalised individuals and groups in academia? How are gender, age, class, citizenship, culture, ethnicity/race, language, religion, and sexuality playing their part?
