CFS: Gender/Sex, Mixed Methods (J of Multiple Res Approaches)

Journal of Multiple Research Approaches

Special issue on: Mixed Methods in Genders & Sexualities Research

Deadline for Papers: 1st March 2013

Over the past three decades, the international explosion of scholarship in the areas of gender, sex and sexuality has created new fields of inquiry and approaches in the cross-disciplinary fields of the humanities, social, and natural sciences. Innovative methodologies have emerged to address the thorny issues of researching identity and subject positions, practices and activities. Yet despite this, there is still much to be done in the development of mixed methods approaches to the study of gender, sex and sexuality, in addition to further attention being required as to what constitutes best practice in terms of qualitative and quantitative research in the field.

This issue invites work that examines ‘methodology’ in gender, sex and sexualities research. We seek essays that elaborate experiences of both theoretical and empirical approaches to research on gender, sex and sexuality. Studies that have employed qualitative and quantitative, as well as mixed method approaches are welcome. We are particularly interested in essays that expose the challenges, emerging issues and solutions in combining innovative approaches and evaluation programs. Work may be submitted in the format of a case study, literature review, research note or research article.

We invite abstracts from all disciplinary and artistic homes including but not limited to: critical theories of race/gender/sexuality, biomedical fields, literary studies, technology and science studies, legal studies, the social sciences, and the arts and humanities generally. Manuscripts within the scope of the special issue should follow APA 6th edn style, be 6000-8000 words, and submitted for double blind peer review according to the journal’s Author Guidelines at:

CFP: Politics and Practices: The History of Post-war Women’s Health

Politics and Practices: The History of Post-war Women’s Health, 22nd-23rd October 2010, Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine, University of Manchester, Manchester UK

This two-day conference will bring together researchers interested in the history of post-war women’s health. In contrast to most histories of women’s health which focus on the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this conference aims to showcase research on the politics, policy and practice of women’s health after 1945, a much less studied yet dynamic era for women as patients, providers, caregivers, policy-makers, and activists. We invite proposals for individual papers of 20 minutes in length. We especially look forward to receiving proposals on the following themes:

  • – Women’s formal health care work: medical and nursing professionals, allied health workers
  • – Women’s informal provision of health care: home care, voluntary work
  • – Women as makers and objects of health policy in post-war states
  • – Women’s everyday health practices: self-care, pharmaceuticals, hygiene, prevention
  • – Sexual health/health and sexuality
  • – Reproductive health, reproduction, and mothering
  • – Mental health, institutions, and activism
  • – Women’s health activism and feminist health politics
  • – The gendering of self-help and the consumer health movement
  • – Women and biomedical research: standards, trials, consent practices
  • – “Female” diseases and their sufferers
  • – Women and post-war epidemics: AIDS and cancer
  • – Ageing and women’s health
  • – Intersections of biomedical and cultural narratives about femininity and womanhood

We particularly welcome submissions from postgraduate researchers. Bursaries to cover transportation and other costs for postgraduates may be available. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact the conference organisers, Dr Emma Jones ( ) and Dr Elizabeth Toon ( ). Please submit paper proposals (300 words) to . The deadline for submission is 1 June 2010.

BIOLOGICAL RESEARCH FOR NURSING (Integrating Biobehavioral Research into Health Care)

SPECIAL ISSUE: Women’s Health Across the Lifespan

Guest Editors: Margaret McLean Heitkemper, PhD, RN, FAAN; Carol A. Landis, DNSc, RN, FAAN; Nancy F. Woods, PhD, RN, FAAN

Deadline: September 15, 2009

Health disparities between men and women start at the beginning of life, with fewer male infants than female surviving their first year. Through the remaining lifespan, men and women experience illness and disease differently, culminating in a shorter lifespan for men than women but more morbidity in old age among women than among men. Challenges for women’s health researchers include 1) extending and integrating knowledge of biobehavioral and sociocultural dimensions of women’s health, 2) expanding understanding of the etiology of disease risk and the means to improve health outcomes among vulnerable subpopulations of women, and 3) advancing interdisciplinary and collaborative efforts to develop and test interventions to promote, maintain, and restore women’s health. The goals of this special issue are to 1) provide recent findings related to the biobehavioral determinants of women’s health, 2) demonstrate the importance of examining sex in clinical problems and outcomes, and 3) promote the examination of sex as an important variable to be considered in biobehavioral research. Manuscripts focused either on women’s health or on disparities in health based on sex will be considered.

Submissions of basic science, clinical and applied research and theoretical-research-practice linkages from multiple disciplines are encouraged as long as they address translational relevance to nursing practice.

Biological Research for Nursing is the only journal specifically intended to deliver basic, clinical, and applied research about biological changes in healthy and unhealthy populations to nurses. The journal publishes peer-reviewed articles that address issues such as:

> Theoretical foundations that increase understanding of biological and physiological changes in health and illness

> Enhancements in health care interventions developed through biological and physiological research findings

> New methods, instruments, and techniques for biological and physiological research

Author Guidelines: Complete manuscripts (including illustrations, figures, etc.) should be submitted electronically at . Authors will be required to set up an online account on the SageTrack system powered by ScholarOne. Submission of a manuscript implies commitment to publish in the journal. Concurrence of all listed authors is assumed. Authors submitting manuscripts to the journal should not simultaneously submit them to another journal; nor should authors submit manuscripts that have been published elsewhere in substantially similar form or with substantially similar content.
