Application Form for Awards Supporting Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries Journal Articles
The 8th Global Conference on Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries (GAF8) was to have been held in April 2021 but, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is postponed to a later date (to be advised). In preparation for GAF8 the Gender in Aquaculture and Fisheries Section of the Asian Fisheries Society (GAFS) is joining with the CGIAR Research Program on Fish Agri-Food Systems (FISH) to call for proposals for awards to support the preparation and publication of quality, open access, research articles. The awards will help support gender researchers to publish their journal articles.

We are seeking high quality gender research papers that will be completed in year 2021 and shared, upon publication, through journal open access via the CGIAR GENDER Platform repository and the GAFS document repository.

We offer four (4) awards to individual researchers or teams who are well advanced in preparing high quality manuscripts suitable for submission to reputable research journals.

Selection criteria and process

Applications will be assessed by a panel from GAFS and CGIAR-FISH according to the following selection criteria.

1. The applicant/team will have a well advanced manuscript on gender in aquaculture or fisheries in a developing country that, with additional work, will be available for submission to a high quality peer-reviewed journal by 1 July 2021.
2. The topic of the study on which the manuscript is based will be relevant to the gender focus areas within the FISH flagships (see: (ie. sustainable aquaculture, resilient small-scale fisheries or aquatic food systems) and the Objectives of GAFS (see: https:/ The following topics are of particular interest as emerging themes for GAF8, but the award opportunity is not limited to these topics:
a. Gender and seaweed aquaculture
b. Labour in fisheries and aquaculture
c. Gender in fisheries with special reference to COVID-19
d. Gender in SSF
3. The originality and clarity of the study concepts and design, the rigour of the study methodology and the quality of data collection, analysis and interpretation as indicated in the application.
4. The applicant/team will be in the early career stage of publishing in GAF, as judged by experience in this field, not just by chronological age.
5. The team/applicant may be from any country. The program will endeavour to support work from a range of geographies, especially work from authors and areas presently underrepresented in the GAF peer-reviewed literature.
