Meta-analysis of gender and science research: synthesis report
This report summarises the main conclusions of the study ‘Meta-analysis of gender and science research’, a project of the 7th RTD Framework Programme of the European Union. Its main objective was to carry out a comprehensive analysis of the last thirty years of European research on horizontal and vertical gender segregation in science with a view to steering policymaking and to defining future research priorities in this field. A major output of the study was the creation of the Gender and Science Database (GSD), a unique online resource containing 4,500 European academic publications scanning... three decades. Further details can be found on the website of the project, which gives access to the GSD and all the reports produced throughout the study (www.genderandscience.org).
