Center of Excellence Women and Science

Target Group: Researchers

CEWS supports researchers from the social sciences, in particular from higher education studies, STS research, and gender studies in German-speaking countries in two ways: Firstly, CEWS provides information for searching and archiving research data on gender in science and research. Secondly, the CEWS’ databases (e.g. statistics, literature, gender equality law, etc.) as well as our publications support the development of new gender knowledge in the social sciences.

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 scientific 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 has created the first information system for research projects in the field of gender and academia from German-speaking countries. CEWSwiki makes all research projects accessible.
