Ada issues are organized around themes and published twice a year. Ada is an open-access peer reviewed journal. The first issue highlighted contributions from the field and was an invited issue. Issue 2 is our first peer reviewed issue that used a multi-level open peer review process.

Ada is a product of the Fembot Collective and published and preserved through the University of Oregon Libraries. The University of Oregon’s Center for the Study of Women in Society and the School of Journalism and Communication provided seed funding and staff for Ada.
