Sexism in Peer Review

Sexism in Peer Review | Women and science | Scoop.it

When sexist comments make it into a technical review of a research article, journal editors and publishers are wise to take a moment and think about processes for finding, responding to, and eradicating

 

If you are a fan of academic banter and hang out on Twitter, there are several irreverent Twitter handles you can follow to get a glimpse into the world of academics. A few of these center around peer review. Handles such as @yourpapersucks or @academicssay deliver fictional and sometimes real and frustrating examples of less than helpful feedback given to authors. Many of these are comedy gold.

Ann-Sofie Schreurs discovered Space late. No worries, though: that was never going to stop her.

The Science Runway: The Newest Trend For Young Women In Science

The Science Runway: The Newest Trend For Young Women In Science | Women and science | Scoop.it

Today Women In Healthcare & Life Sciences (WIHLS)—a global, non-profit, non-partisan research institute committed to advancing women in the healthcare and life science industries—announces the launch of a new initiative aimed to encourage research and scientific interests of girls. The Science Runway(thesciencerunway.com) is a website specifically designed to attract young girls to careers in healthcare and life sciences by showcasing women who have successfully created careers in a variety of roles.

MyScienceWork's insight:

It is a pity they had to use the "girly" image of the runway to attract young girls, otherwise the idea is neat!

Seulement 30% des chercheurs dans le monde sont des femmes. Quelle est la situation dans votre pays?

Seulement 30% des chercheurs dans le monde sont des femmes. Quelle est la situation dans votre pays? | Women and science | Scoop.it

Dans le monde, seulement 30 % des chercheurs sont des femmes. Bien que les femmes soient de plus en plus nombreuses à s’inscrire à l’université, un grand nombre d’entre elles sont exclues des plus hauts niveaux qui leur permettraient de faire carrière dans la recherche. Cependant, une analyse des données plus approfondie révèle quelques exceptions surprenantes. Par exemple, en Bolivie, les femmes représentent 63 % des chercheurs, contre 26 % en France et 8 % en Éthiopie. (...) - CDEACF, par Mélissa Lessard, 05/03/2014

II- Doctorat : les femmes, les disciplines et les étrangers

II- Doctorat : les femmes, les disciplines et les étrangers | Women and science | Scoop.it

En regardant par secteurs, on constate qu’en France, comme ailleurs, la proportion de femme augmente et tend vers la parité, mais avec de fortes différences entre disciplines. Contrairement à une idée reçue, notre situation en sciences, bien que médiocre sur le plan européen, est bien meilleure que la situation en SHS. Enfin, du fait taux élevé de nouveaux docteurs étrangers qui ne resteront pas en France, les chiffres globaux donnent une idée trop flatteuse de notre situation : en 10 ans le nombre de doctorants soutenus par des français baisse de 20 %. Pour atteindre 3 % du PIB pour la recherche, il faut d’aller vers un doublement du nombre de docteurs formés par an. (...) - par Henri Audier, SNCS, 27/02/214
