Research Data On Gender Relations In Academia

Numerous studies on gender relations and gender equality policy in academia regularly produce research data that could be useful for a secondary analysis and for other research topics. At present, only a small amount of research data that was explicitly collected on gender relations in academia is archived. Long-term surveys such as graduate studies or social surveys on students are also available to be used in gender-specific studies.

CEWS would like to support researchers in their search for research data and at the same time motivate them to archive data from their own projects and thus make them accessible to other researchers. An overview of projects in the field of gender and academia can be found in CEWSwiki (in German).

In the following you will find search options at GESIS and other data-providing institutions as well as basic information on data archiving.
