Target Group: Researchers

CEWS supports researchers from the social sciences, particularly higher education studies, STS research, and gender studies in German-speaking countries: On the one hand, CEWS provides information for searching and archiving research data on gender in science and research. On the other hand, CEWS’ databases (statistics, literature, gender equality law and research projects) provide relevant information for research. Furthermore, the topic pages combine practical examples, information, and research results on selected issues.

Literature database, CEWS publications and news

CEWS provides research opportunities in Lit@CEWS, the literature databases on gender studies with a focus on gender equality in academia and research. In addition, CEWS offers information on academic conferences including Call for Papers in its ‘News’ section, both from German-speaking countries and internationally. CEWSjournal regularly offers information on research results and new publications from this field.

Research Projects on Gender and Academia at CEWSwiki

With CEWSwiki, CEWS created the first information system for research projects in the field of gender and academia for German-speaking countries. CEWSwiki makes all research projects accessible as they are presented in a standard template.
