  "abstract": "<p>This repository contains the author gender dataset (as a comma-delimited .csv file) associated with the paper entitled&nbsp;&#39;The Impact of Gender on Conference Authorship in Audio Engineering: Analysis Using a New Data Collection Method&#39;, published in the IEEE Transactions Special Issue on Increasing the Socio-Cultural Diversity of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Related Fields. Available at: <a href=\"http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/TE.2018.2814613\">dx.doi.org/10.1109/TE.2018.2814613</a>. Please cite both the paper and&nbsp;dataset if used. Visualisation is available at: <a href=\"http://tibbakoi.github.io/aesgender\">http://tibbakoi.github.io/aesgender</a>.</p>\n\n<p>---</p>\n\n<p>The dataset was produced using a novel method which used self-identified pronouns, therefore allowing for as many groups as necessary to describe the population.</p>\n\n<ol>\n\t<li>A list of authors was generated from conference proceedings.</li>\n\t<li>An email was sent to each author to acquire their pronoun.</li>\n\t<li>If no email was available/no response was received, a pronoun was acquired from a biography.</li>\n\t<li>If no biography was available, a pronoun was inferred from traditional gender markers and gender presentation.</li>\n\t<li>If no gender marker/photograph was available, the entry was labelled as &#39;Information Unavailable&#39;. For brevity, the label &#39;Unknown&#39; is used in the paper.</li>\n</ol>\n\n<p>---</p>\n\n<p>The columns in the dataset are as follows:</p>\n\n<ol>\n\t<li>ID: unique identifier of entry</li>\n\t<li>Pronoun: pronoun of entry</li>\n\t<li>Position (abs): numerical absolute position within author list for entry</li>\n\t<li>Position (relative): relative position within author list for entry (either First, Last, or Middle)</li>\n\t<li>Single/multi-author: whether the publication for that entry has a single author or has multiple authors (single author publications are excluded from author position analysis)</li>\n\t<li>Conference: Full conference name of entry</li>\n\t<li>Topic: Topic of conference of entry, taken from conference name</li>\n\t<li>Year: Year of conference of entry</li>\n\t<li>Type: Type of publication for that entry as listed on the online conference proceedings</li>\n\t<li>Grouped Type: Grouping of publication types for that entry for easier analysis due to inconsistencies in online conference proceedings (groups are: workshop, poster, paper, panel, keynote, invited speaker, invited paper, demo)</li>\n\t<li>Inc. for author pos?: True/False as to whether to include the entry for analysis over author position (included types are: paper, invited paper, poster (all with multiple authors) as these have meaningful author orders)</li>\n\t<li>Inc. for single/multi-author?: True/False as to whether to include the entry for analysis over single/multi author (includes types are: paper, invited paper, poster as these have meaningful author orders)</li>\n\t<li>Invited paper status: Grouping of the types to allow statistical analysis over invited vs non-invited types (invited types are: invited speaker, invited paper, keynote, panel. Non-invited types are: poster, paper, demo, workshop)</li>\n</ol>\n\n<p>NB:&nbsp;Some grouping of the data is required as online conference proceedings are not always consistent (Column 10).&nbsp;Some labelling of the data is required to determine which entries to include in certain types of analysis (Columns 11-13).</p>\n\n<p>---</p>\n\n<p>This dataset is distributed in the hopes that it will prove useful under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0, with no warranty; or the implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular problem.</p>\n\n<p>---</p>\n\n<p>Dataset curated by: Kat Young and Michael Lovedee-Turner at the Audio Lab, Dept. of Electronic Engineering, University of York.<br>\nContact: kaey500@york.ac.uk, mjlt500@york.ac.uk</p>",
