Gender in the Global Research Landscape

Critical issues related to gender disparity and bias must be examined by sound studies. Drawing upon its high-quality global data sources and analytical expertise, Elsevier is developing a comprehensive new report, entitled Gender in the Global Research Landscape, as an evidence-based examination of the outputs, quality, and impact of research worldwide through a gender lens and as a vehicle for understanding the role of gender within the structure of the global research enterprise.

Anticipated in early March 2017, the public report will cover 20 years, 12 geographies and 27 subject areas, providing powerful insight and guidance on gender research and gender equality policy for governments, funders and institutions worldwide. In addition to global results and trends, the Gender in the Global Research Landscape report will include comparisons between research disciplines. For a preview of what to expect, take a look at Elsevier’s Mapping Gender in the German Research Arena 2015 report.

Elsevier has partnered with expert stakeholder organizations and individuals around the world to advise on the report’s development, including the research questions, methodologies, and analytics, and to provide a policy context for the report findings.
