The International Journal of Gender Economics (IJGE) publishes research that develops the field of Gender Economics as a multi-disciplinary field, which combines the fields of economics, gender, and sociology. The approach does not limit the gender conversation to women but challenges traditional thinking on economics and gender to unlock new discourses backed by solid research and industry experience. Gender Economics is inclusive of all gendered identities and considers the interplay of gender in society at all levels, exploring the changed global social footprint and the new economies produced by this change. The journal is designed to explore and resolve how gender is produced and its impact and effect on the economy and society. The journal is designed to provide planners and policy analysts, practitioners, academicians, and organisations with the latest research to uncover barriers to performance and question existing business and policy structures.

Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Gender Economics (IJGE) is to build a body of knowledge in a structured way that creates a field of study in Gender Economics. The subject of gender is narrowed when only applied to women’s studies or gender studies and can be undervalued as a ‘soft’ science or ‘women’s issues’. Furthering the study of Gender Economics using a multi-disciplinary approach broadens the conversation on gender and makes it more relevant to industry, particularly when it is framed in terms of the categories: policy, investment, environment, sustainability, innovation and health. Articles in the journal should endeavor to span the domains of the soft and hard disciplines of economics, including financial management and accounting, as well as gender studies and sociology.
