Science survey for young scientists
The Science magazine has launched a new survey for NextGen scientists. The question selected is:
What is your definition of a successful scientist? How has this definition changed between your mentor's generation and your own? To submit, go to http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NextGen2gy
Submission deadline is 17 February, and the best responses will be published in the 6 April issue of Science.
You can now read the many responses received to the first survey here. The response of GYA member Caradee Wright was among those selected for publication.
The survey was also highlighted in the 6 January Editorial where, Bruce Alberts, remarks about the first survey: "All in all, Science is very encouraged by the response, and we hope that this new feature will—along with new organizations like the Global Young Academy — help to empower young scientists to play a larger role in both the
scientifi c community and society."
The print version of the results is available here.
