Check out the new website here: The Global State of Young Scientists (GloSYS) (globalyoungacademy.net)

The new website showcases the Global State of Young Scientists (GloSYS) working group, which leads and guides empirical research projects investigating the context in which early-career researchers (ECRs) today work, and the challenges and motivations that shape their career trajectories.

GloSYS is now in its third installment and has reached an increasingly global status, as outlined in the world map below. The yellow area indicates countries researched for the ASEAN regional study, red signifies the reach of the Africa regional study, while orange outlines countries that the LAC regional study focuses on.

Among particular themes of interest for GloSYS are young scientists’ motivations to enter research, support schemes, access to mentoring, scientific productivity  and challenges faced as well as funding, mobility, and gender inequities within the higher education and research environment.

The GloSYS project consists of four sequential phases: A precursor study served to obtain an encompassing picture of the state of young scientists worldwide. Three regional studies followed: The ASEAN and Africa regional studies are already completed, while the Latin American and the Caribbean (LAC) regional study is to be conducted until 2023.

The research projects’ results will ultimately be integrated, allowing a groundbreaking comparative perspective on ECRs worldwide.

Stay tuned, and reach out to our research team for any questions or comments.
