As a central theme in social science research in the field of work and organization, the study of gender has achieved contemporary significance beyond the confines of early discussions of women at work. Launched in 1994, Gender, Work and Organization was the first journal to provide an arena dedicated to debate and analysis of gender relations, the organization of gender and the gendering of organizations.

Aims and Scope

Gender, Work & Organization welcomes theory-driven papers or empirical papers that go beyond mere description, using data as a means of advancing, or reflecting upon theory.

GWO publishes papers which are; sophisticated in theoretical, epistemological and methodological content; mature in their engagement of sociological and/or gender theory; engaged with a broad body of international scholarship and highly developed conceptually. As such, we aim to provide a forum for papers that go beyond a traditional oppositional-binary concept of gender. Papers which are underdeveloped, represent ideas in embryo or redrafted conference papers will be declined, as will papers which are purely or largely empiricist or descriptive. Paying particular attention to engagement with and contribution to theory, submissions to GWO should be original in content and style (not under review, accepted, or published elsewhere) and be not more than 9000 words. Exceptions to wordcount /length of paper may be made at the discretion of the editorial team in the case of papers reporting qualitative research.
