The editorial team of OPEN GENDER JOURNAL welcomes submissions of new research articles, discussion pieces, and reviews. Through its thematic and disciplinary openness, the open access journal reflects the breadth and diversity of the scholarly field of intersectional gender studies. This encompasses various methodological and theoretical orientations, including but not limited to gender studies, queer studies, diversity studies, feminist studies, women's studies, disability studies, racism studies, classism studies, critical whiteness, post- and decolonial studies.

You are also very welcome to be part of our Reviewer Database.

This is a freely accessible database that can be used to find reviewers for scientific articles.



Driven by a worried perspective at the continuously intoxicated climate and more radicalised discussions about Gender Studies, we are cooperating with the In-Visible Agency in a new project: IN-VISIBLE ACADEMIA. The intention with this project is to grant visibility to research within the Gender Studies and to highlight implications for the practical world. We hope to contribute to making research more relatable and to help people outside of the academic world to gain access into state of the art research.


If you are a Gender Studies researcher and agree to be featured on IN-VISIBLE’s Social Media with your line of work; you can partake and help us to showcase the added value of Gender Studies. By focusing on the practical implications of the researchers’ findings, our features are an attempt at linking academia to practice. 


Contributing is not much work, we have made it easy for you. We kindly ask you to tell us about yourself and your project in a couple of sentences. This should not take longer than 15-25 minutes of your time. If there are any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the team: hi@in-visible.berlin




Many greetings,

The MvBZ-Team
