Upcoming Research Newsletter (special issue on gender gap research): New papers open for review

Mohammed Sadat Abdulai
 Hi everyone,
We’re preparing for the August 2019 research newsletter and looking for contributors. Please take a look at https://etherpad.wikimedia.org/p/WRN201908 and add your name next to any paper you are interested in covering. Our target publication date is on 31 August 11:59 UTC. As usual, short notes and one-paragraph reviews are most welcome.
 For the August edition, we are planning a special issue focusing mainly on recent gender gap/gender bias research. (Upcoming special issues topics may include health and education.) There are about 20 papers from this area on our todo list which will all be covered in the August issue, either as a mere list item or - with your help - in form of a more informative writeup or review. They include:
