Successful Women Researchers in the Social Sciences: A Case Study of Catalan Public Universities
Ion, Georgeta; Duran Belloch, Maria del Mar
Tertiary Education and Management, v19 n1 p68-84 2013
This article examines the factors which contribute to the success of female academics engaging in research in social sciences. The data were obtained through a series of interviews carried out at public universities in Catalonia with women, all of whom were the heads of research groups recognized by the Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalan Government). These results reveal several aspects relevant for women academics, at both the individual and institutional levels, in terms of employment opportunities, management of research programmes, development of teaching strategies and individual time management. This should assist the development of institutional policies and practices within higher education to help women build successful research careers. (Contains 1 table.)
