She Figures 2015 Leaflet

July 2015

The She Figures publication is the main source of pan-European, comparable statistics on the state of gender equality in research and innovation. It covers a wide range of themes, including the proportions of women and men amongst top‑level graduates, academic staff and research/advisory boards, the working conditions for women and men researchers, the integration of the gender dimension in the content of peer-reviewed scientific articles, and various indicators measuring gender gaps in scientific and innovation outputs. This leaflet presents some preliminary results of the She Figures 2015 data collection, while the full She Figures 2015 Report will be published at the end of the year.

Released every three years since 2003, the report provides a key evidence base for policies in the area of gender equality in research and innovation. It is recommended reading for policymakers, researchers and anybody with a general interest in these issues. The co-operation of EU Member States, Associated Countries and Eurostat in preparing She Figures is gratefully acknowledged.

Science-Metrix collaborated with KU Leuven, ICF International and representatives from the European Commission’s Directorate-General of Research and Innovation on the preparation of this leaflet.
