Christian Poulsen Swedish Questionnaire on working conditions ______________________________________________________________________________ - Uppsala University: Martha Blomqvist (1998-1999) “The participation of women researchers in the TMR programme of the European Commission”. The project examines the part played by female researchers in the Training and Mobility of Researchers (TMR) programme, particularly in connection with research training grants (the Marie Curie Grant Scheme). Information was gained through statistical data and personal interviews covering all countries participating in the programme. The report provides an overview of the representation of women in TMR applications and success rates. It presents data on the representation of women in the participating countries at different levels and within disciplines and discusses the impact of partnering and parenting on the ability to exercise mobility and progress in research careers. Based on fellow suggestions strategies, to promote the representation of women in research, are identified. - Fredrik Bondestam who worked on an evaluation of positive discrimination had previously published Mentorn – en hjälpande hand för kvinnor i karriären?”(1996) Uppsala, Psykologiska Institurionen, Uppsala Universitet. The later dealt with mentorship as a possible way of helping women in their academic career. - Göteborg University: An interesting project that is currently going in Gothenburg is “Kvinnliga studenters föreställningar om forskarutbildningen och forskning som yrke. En komparativ studie av Litauen, Mexico och Sverige”, lead by Inga Wernersson. The aim of the study is to study the Swedish situation of gender inequality by comparing it to a university in Kaunas, Lithuania and the UNAM university of Mexico. The basic element of comparison is the image undergraduate and doctoral female students have of graduate studies and of research as an occupation. It is convenient to close the state of the art factors with a link to the broadest data base on works on gender studies in Sweden: the Kvinnsam data base. The database is accessible on http://www.libris.kb.se/kvinnsam.html and is edited at the University of Gothenburg. 6

Christian Poulsen Swedish Questionnaire on working conditions ______________________________________________________________________________ Development of the questionnaire 3 The questionnaire was developed centrally in Muenster and no crucial changes have been made. A pilot-questionnaire was constructed in Warsaw by the doctoral students but did not play any role in the construction of the so-called final version adopted by the coordinators in Muenster. In order to increase the value of crosscountry comparisons no fundamental changes were made in the version sent out by Muenster. There has only been corrections of grammar, language, spelling and evident incoherencies. The core issues of the questionnaire were decided centrally in Muenster. Apparently the core issues were social background of the respondents, perception of discrimination in academia and working conditions. Methodology The web-based enquiry: In doing an enquiry many factors would have to be taken into consideration in the way about of the sending of the questionnaire. These reasons could be costs, researcher control, interviewer bias, response rate and intimacy of the respondents 4 . In June 2002 a small pilot study of the questionnaire was run on 6 professors at Handelshögskolan i Stockholm. With the pilot there was a possibility of testing the preliminary questions and testing the software of Luvit e-val. Similar pilot studies were taken out in the other participating countries (Poland, Germany, Austria, Spain and France) and the short comes and inconveniences of the questionnaire were reported back to the co-ordination unit in Muenster. The questionnaire was sent out late summer 2002 to the total population of full professors in a range of disciplines selected centrally from the co-ordination centre of WEU. After a process of clearing the sample where promoted professors and emeritus professors were withdrawn the total population amounted to 877 full professors. As of today when three reminders have been sent out in a time span of 5 3 The following passage summarises the personal opinion of the doctoral student and network participant Christian Poulsen. 4 See for instance Herbert Hyman (1963), pp. 29-39 or Neuman (1991). 7
