2018 Global Survey of Mathematical, Computing, and Natural Scientists open!

A crucial component of the Gender Gap in Mathematical, Computing, and Natural Sciences project is the compilation of self-reported data from scientists via a global, multilingual, and multidisciplinary survey. This survey, which targets 45,000 respondents in multiple languages, will explore comparisons across regions, countries, disciplines, level of development of the country, sector of employment and age.

The survey is now open to respondents from all over the world and is available in English, French, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, and Arabic. If you have studied or worked in mathematical, computing or natural sciences, or in the history and philosophy of science and technology, we encourage you to visit the link below to complete the survey and to also share this link with your colleagues:

GLOBAL SURVEY

The survey will remain open until December 31, 2018.
