Is the balance of research published by women continuing to improve? Are women better science communicators? Are the opportunities afforded to male researchers the same as those for female researchers?
Join us on February 13th when Digital Science’s Head of Public Engagement, Dr. Suze Kundu, and Head of Metrics Development, Mike Taylor will deep dive into the gender split of publications featured in the Altmetric Top 100, the annual list of the most talked-about research, and what that can tell us about the scholarly landscape.
Along with this, they will explore the publication trends and public response to the latest research into feminism and studies around the #metoo movement to understand:
- What is the effect of the #metoo movement on research?
- Is this research afforded the same funding opportunities?
- What other barriers are there to getting research published in this area?
And so much more!
