Tijdschrift voor Genderstudies

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 and has a partnership with the Netherlands Research School of Gender Studies (NOG).

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.
