Scope and Policy

Cadernos Pagu - interdisciplinary journal from the Center for Gender Studies Pagu, Unicamp - accepts articles, essays, interviews, reviews and research documents related to the field of gender studies. The texts submitted are reviewed by the Editorial Committee and ad hoc peers reviewers. Each articles is initially submitted to two outside referees and when there are contradictory evaluations it is submitted to a third opinion. Published works are not accepted; nevertheless the journal publishes translations of relevant theoretical articles in the field of gender studies, chosen from a selection of the Editorial Committee. Authors are responsible for the articles content and for the selection of keywords.

Cadernos Pagu is intended to reach an academic public, and university libraries from all over the country look forward to each issue, besides the great interest that comes from graduate students. In the last few years, though, government and non-government organizations that deal with women, homosexuals and transgender issues and politics have also acquired our collection.
