2018 Global Survey of Mathematical, Computing, and Natural Scientists
Please consider contributing to the 2018 Global Survey of Mathematical, Computing, and Natural Scientists organized by the Gender Gap in Science –project.
You will find the survey at http://statisticalresearchcenter.org/global18.
The survey is part of an interdisciplinary collaboration of eleven partners, supported by the International Council for Science (ICSU), which aims to better understand the problems mathematical, computing, and natural science academics and practitioners are facing around the world.
One of the specific tasks for the project is to collect data across the world to inform policy makers from all countries, especially developing countries, about reducing the gap between men and women in mathematical, computing, and natural sciences.
The data are being collected by the non-profit Statistical Research Center of the American Institute of Physics. Responses to this survey are voluntary, and your individual information will be held in strict confidence.
