Description
  • Abstract

    The DZHW Scientists Survey 2019 is an online survey of full-time academic and artistic staff at German universities, colleges of education, theology, art and music, and medical schools. It is repeated at regular intervals as a trend study to explore the working and research conditions at German universities and equivalent institutions of higher education. The first two surveys took place in 2010 and 2016. The 2019 Scientists Survey was conducted from November 2019 to February 2020. Accordingly, the COVID19 pandemic from March 2020 onwards did not yet have impact on the survey of scientists, who were consequently able to refer to their regular daily research routine. The DZHW science survey is designed as a multi-topic survey. Each survey contains a core instrument (a constant survey programme over several waves) with central questions on working and research conditions as well as modules with more in-depth questions on current research policy topics and research priorities. The core instrument is completed by priority topics for which the instruments are developed in cooperation with research groups within and outside the DZHW. The focus topics of the 2019 science survey were: open data, research information, authorship, knowledge transfer and subject cultures.
