Querelles. Yearbook for Women and Gender Studies (QJB) is a peer-reviewed journal published by the Free University of Berlin , which has been published annually since 1996 and has been published by the online portal querelles-net since 2000 . Review magazine for women and gender studies is supplemented.


Querelles sees itself in the tradition of European women's and gender history, which was characterized by passionate debates about gender relations, especially from the 15th to 18th centuries, and is known as Querelle des femmes . The editors want to build on this: "by creating a place of conflict culture in the field of women and gender research and a place of intellectual exchange between the sexes with Querelles".

Story and concept

Querelles was founded in 1996 as the first cross-disciplinary yearbook in the field of women and gender studies. It is published in connection with the series Results of Women's and Gender Studies at the Free University of Berlin , a program to promote young female scientists. It aims to provide a platform for the multitude of subject-specific, inter- and transdisciplinary publications in the field of women's and gender studies ( gender studies ). Querelles aims to shape tradition by taking up central issues and analyzing the history of science as gender history using selected examples. Scientific reviews are intended to provide an overview of important publications and current research focuses, supplemented by a continuously updated bibliography that provides information on the new publications in the field.

From 1996 to 2002 the yearbook was published in a print edition by Metzler Verlag; from 2003 by Wallstein Verlag . After 15 issues, it was converted to an open access periodical in 2011 . The German Research Foundation funds Querelles in the “Scientific Journals” program area.

In addition to the yearbook, querelles-net has been published three times a year since 2000 with reviews of publications from all subject areas of women's and gender studies / gender studies.

Querelles is designed according to the international standard for review journals. All contributions go through a reliable review process. Articles in German and English are published.

Frequency of publication

The ongoing publication of individual contributions is combined with a one-time annual presentation in the yearbook. In the spring of each year, a focus topic for the following year is determined and announced in the Call for papers section .
