Reaching for scientific excellence in gender research

How are the concepts of quality and excellence in science applied and developed within various fields of research? What are the advantages and problems in the present understanding of excellence with regard to gender research?

In October 2005 the Swedish Research Council’s Committee for Gender Research and the Nordic Institute for Women’s Studies and Gender Research (NICK) organized the conference ”Reaching for Scientific Excellence in Gender Research”. This publication presents the lectures and discussions from the conference, and aims to provide a picture of the current knowledge and on-going discussion in the scientific community about the challenging concept of excellence.
