Report on the selection process by the Slovenian FRAGEN team

Experts were selected by combining the following criteria: age (women of three different generations), working on different professional fields (research, university and activism), and one expert active in the lesbian movement.

In the next stage each of the experts proposed up to 10 documents following the Fragen criteria. All 28 proposed documents (books, articles, leaflet, poster) were put on a joint list, out of which each expert selected 10 most important and prioritized them.

To make the final short list of documents, each of the propositions was rated with 1-10 points according to the ranking of the experts. Document proposed on the top of the list got 10 points, document on the second place 9, on the third 8 points and so on. Points for each of the document were than summed up and documents ranked according to the number of points they got.
