Evaluation Capacity Development & Gender: The Added Value of Open-Access Journals

Dear Colleagues,

I hope all is well. In one of my blogs posted on a variety of list-serves this past week (click here), I discussed the value added of open-access journals within the scope of evaluation capacity development programs aimed at encouraging practitioners (e.g., organizations M&E officers) to write about their evaluation work and get their articles published in peer-reviewed journals.

Below is the link that will give you access to one of such journals and which I suspect many of you are familiar with: Gender and Development. For those who are not aware of it, all the articles published in this journal are free thanks to the partnership established between the publisher and an international NGO. To access the journal's latest issue, please click on the following link:

Gender & Development March 2015 Issue

I particularly recommend two articles from the last issue: 

  1. the first one (written by Kalpana Viswanath and Ashish Basu) on the use of a new mobile application to measure women's perception of safety in Indian cities, and
  2. the second one (written by Sara Ortiz Escalante and Bianca Guitéreez Valdivia) on the use of participatory methods to enhance women's participation in urban planning 

Best of luck with all your Gender & Evaluation endeavours,
