The Researcher Journey Through a Gender Lens shows good news, in that the participation of women in research is increasing, but inequality remains when it comes to for publication outputs, citations, awarded grants, collaboration, and perceptions, and Denmark lies at the bottom of all European countries.

The report examined research participation, career progression, and perceptions across the European Union and 15 countries globally, covering 26 subject areas. The analysis is based on Elsevier Scopus data and was further informed by experts from around the world who advised on the report’s development, including the research questions, methodologies, and analytics.

On a positive note, Women do rank well in Denmark in the distribution of men: women in some STEMM (meaning: Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine) subjects such as Medicine and Veterinary Science, but more poorly in Mathematics.
