> This book aims to incorporate both empirical studies and qualitative evaluations
> of F/OSS technologies in which Gender Equity concerns have been involved.
> For example: gender and F/OSS instructional technology (computer-based
> teaching); gender-based cultural factors in the use of F/OSS; human-F/OSS
> interaction and trends; the barriers of F/OSS adoption based on gender
> concerns; and gender-based organizational and work issues; as well as reviews

> how F/OSS technology is relevant, or how it might be relevant, particularly
> with respect to local, regional, or international development issues.
> WOWEM will accept submissions in English and Spanish, but alternate languages
> are welcome as approved by the editors. Proposals for submission must be
> received by August 16th, 2004 at jmcknight6655-at-rogers.com. We intend to

> drafts must be completed by September 30th, 2004, with the intent to have
> authors complete work by December 31, 2004. Alternate deadlines may be
> made available upon request.
> FULL LENGTH ARTICLES
> Full Length Articles can be anywhere up to approximately 5,000 words in
> length, including (if needed) references, diagrams, statistics, etc. These
> articles may be qualitative, quantitative, or a combination of both. The
> intent of the editors is to allow for extremely diverse submissions.
> CASE STUDIES
> Case Studies (up to 5,000 words) are highly regarded as material for submission.
> Since it is often difficult to create a research design that is applicable
> to standard quantitative statistical analysis or adequate control of variables,
> an appropriate focus can be methodologies. These methods are best described
> in Case Study format. The editors wish to encourage submissions from ALL
> experimental, educational, and organizational spheres. All Case Studies
> should present an adequate description of the background of the presenting
> problem, any methodologies used, the outcomes, and explanations for the
> outcomes observed.
> SHORT PAPERS
> The book will recognize that F/OSS is a diverse topic politically, geographically,
> and culturally. The papers can be on any type of research that has relevance
> to Gender Equity and F/OSS. We would like to see short reports that authors
> may feel are not likely to be published as a full article, but which appears
> to offer intriguing, preliminary work and findings. We welcome both quantitative
> and qualitative research articles; pilot studies; non-trivial assignments
> done by or set for students; and even completely speculative papers that
> suggest a further avenue of study and research.
> The length should be between 500-1,500 words, including any references.
> Since space is at a premium include core details that are required to help
> the reader understand the main thrust of the article. The discussion should
> mention possible flaws or alternative interpretations of the results, other
> than the main interpretation presented by the author(s). This is as much
> to indicate to the reader that the author(s) is/are aware of these possible
> flaws and alternative interpretations. It also serves to instruct for
> the potential to replicate work.
> Creative Non-Fiction
> Finally, the editors will accept short (up to 1,000 words) creative non-fiction
> works describing personal experiences with F/OSS and Gender Equity. Space
> for this may be somewhat limited, and this material may be used for alternate
> media, such as on the WOWEM website.
