Many astronomers now participate in large international collaborations, and it is important to examine whether these structures foster a scientific climate that is inclusive and diverse. The Committee on the Participation of Women in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (CPWS) was formed to evaluate the demographics and gender climate within SDSS-IV, one of the largest and most geographically distributed astronomical collaborations. In April 2014, the CPWS administered a demographic survey to establish… Expand

How Academic Biologists and Physicists View Science Outreach
TLDR
It is found that scientists’ outreach activities are stratified by gender and that university and disciplinary rewards as well as scientists�’ perceptions of their own skills have an impact on science outreach. Expand
