Call for Crowdsourced Data: Gender of Anthro Editorial Boards


One of my undergrads needs your help! We are researching the gender composition of editorial boards and are having a hard time finding the front matter of several journals (where the board members are listed).

If you have copies of journals on your shelf could you snap a photo and send it to her via text or email (mention the year if it is not visible)? We need a photo of the first journal printed for every volume year.  Example: American Anthropologist. Volume 2, Number 1, January 2010.

post script – we emailed editors and only one responded to her request (Cultural Anthropology, woot!). 🙁 So maybe crowdsourced data is the way to go? 🙂 We’ll update this list regularly.

post-post-script – Just soft launched the Gatekeepers Project. Announcements forthcoming.
