About the Journal

SAWWA: Jurnal Studi Gender – is published by the Center for Gender and Child Studies (Pusat Studi Gender dan Anak) LP2M, Universitas Islam Negeri Walisongo, Semarang. Launched in 2006, the journal has been issued two times a year every April and October. Sawwa invites scholarly articles on gender and child studies from multiple disciplines and perspectives, including religion, education, psychology, law, social studies, etc.

Initially the scope of the journal was limited to gender studies, based on ISSN LIPI’s Decree for print publication. Later on, to accommodate overlapping topics on child studies, we modified the name to Jurnal Studi Gender dan Anak. After a discussion with the ISSN Office of PDII-LIPI, while proposing ISSN (for online media), in 2017, we changed the name back to its origin, based on the first decree. Hence, although the name is Jurnal Studi Gender, the designation of the journal covers topics on both gender and child.    

Journal SAWWA has been accredited based on Ministry Decree by the Directorate General of Research Strengthening and Development No. 51/E/KPT/2017, dated on December 4, 2017, valid for 5 years.
