The Researcher Journey Through a Gender Lens: An examination of research participation, career progression, and perceptions across the globe

About this video

Sarah Huggett explains the advances made at Elsevier to increase gender equality, diversity and inclusion, in which the Elsevier Gender Working Group has been playing a driving role. Priorities include: gender diversity for journal editors, preventing implicit bias in peer review, enhancing reporting on sex and gender dimensions in research, and promoting new studies. The Researcher Journey is one of the most recent reports. It shows that whilst progress has been made in improving representation of women, further change is urgently needed in physical science, in grant awarding and patents, in international collaborations and in promoting the value of gender equality.
