GenderOpen is the short name for a project to create an Open Access repository for gender studies. The project, funded by the German Research Foundation DFG, has started on October 1, 2016 and the GenderOpen website was launched in December 2017. In this blog, the members of the GenderOpen project introduce themselves and write about their objectives, challenges they have faced, and solutions they have found. We would be happy to receive your ideas and feedback! Our logbook also documents the progress of the project.
