The social climate for women studying STEM subjects is changing, but the proportion of women taking STEM subjects in Japan is small. Only 27.9% of university students in the department of science is women in 2019. In this study, we used an online survey to investigate whether randomly providing three types of gender equality information increased t...

Women are underrepresented in physics. Because of the structure of the Japanese educational system, more women must choose physics as a subject for university entrance exams to increase the number of women studying advanced physics at university. In this study, we investigated the factors influencing girls’ choice of physics for university entrance...

Women are a minority in science, technology, engineering and mathematics academic careers. In particular, few women in Japan choose to study physics and mathematics. In this study, we investigated the factors contributing to the masculine image of physics and mathematics based on the framework of our expanded model. We conducted online questionnair...

U.S. and other publics perceive STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields as masculine and scientist as a male occupation, but Japanese public perception remains unstudied. Using an online survey, we identified keywords associated with physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering, information science, biology, and mathematics. A...

Many studies have examined the impression that the general public has of science and how this can prevent girls from choosing science fields. Using an online questionnaire, we investigated whether the public perception of several academic fields was gender-biased in Japan. First, we found the gender-bias gap in public perceptions was largest in nur...

理系の中でも物理系の女子生徒進学率は他学科と比較し低い状態が続いています。 2017年度10月に採択されたJST-RISTEX「科学技術イノベーション政策のための科学」横山プロジェクト 「多様なイノベーションを支える女子生徒数物系進学要因分析」では、 数物系に女子生徒が進学する際の 社会的要因・障壁に注目し、研究を進めています。
Project
This project examines how and why researchers use crowdfunding as a source of research funding, how this will impact science, and looks at public and academic perceptions of how crowdfunded science should be carried out.
