About GenPORT

GenPORT is a community sourced internet portal for sharing knowledge and inspiring collaborative action on gender and science.

A developing online community of practitioners, policy-makers and researchers is served by the GenPORT portal, and made up of organisations and individuals working across the globe for gender equality and excellence in science, technology and innovation. This covers all sciences – natural and social sciences, and humanities.

The GenPORT community and internet portal provide an arena for organisations and individuals to showcase and act as a gateway to a wealth of research resources, policy information, practical materials, and much more. Constantly evolving online information and services are shaped by the activities and contributions of community members. The portal aims to facilitate the exchange of experiences and to foster collaboration, and so to support continuing policy and practical interventions in pursuit of gender equality.

Some key hints when contributing:

  • Don't create an institutional "user" account. Accounts are for persons. Instead, create the desired Organisation and tell everybody about your membership by creating a Relation.
  • Upload in any language, but consider to provide at least an English abstract and/or an English translation of the title.
  • The more fields you fill in when uploading content the easier it will be for other people to find your resources, projects, organisatiosn or events - especially if your content is not in English.
  • Content can be classified with our Gender & Science Taxonomy apart from many other meta-data fields.
