    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This repository contains the author gender dataset (as a comma-delimited .csv file) associated with the paper entitled&amp;nbsp;&amp;#39;The Impact of Gender on Conference Authorship in Audio Engineering: Analysis Using a New Data Collection Method&amp;#39;, published in the IEEE Transactions Special Issue on Increasing the Socio-Cultural Diversity of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Related Fields. Available at: &lt;a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;. Please cite both the paper and&amp;nbsp;dataset if used. Visualisation is available at: &lt;a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;


&lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;A list of authors was generated from conference proceedings.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;An email was sent to each author to acquire their pronoun.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;If no email was available/no response was received, a pronoun was acquired from a biography.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;If no biography was available, a pronoun was inferred from traditional gender markers and gender presentation.&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;If no gender marker/photograph was available, the entry was labelled as &amp;#39;Information Unavailable&amp;#39;. For brevity, the label &amp;#39;Unknown&amp;#39; is used in the paper.&lt;/li&gt;


&lt;p&gt;The columns in the dataset are as follows:&lt;/p&gt;

	&lt;li&gt;ID: unique identifier of entry&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Pronoun: pronoun of entry&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Position (abs): numerical absolute position within author list for entry&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Position (relative): relative position within author list for entry (either First, Last, or Middle)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;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)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Conference: Full conference name of entry&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Topic: Topic of conference of entry, taken from conference name&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Year: Year of conference of entry&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Type: Type of publication for that entry as listed on the online conference proceedings&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;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)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;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)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;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)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;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)&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;NB:&amp;nbsp;Some grouping of the data is required as online conference proceedings are not always consistent (Column 10).&amp;nbsp;Some labelling of the data is required to determine which entries to include in certain types of analysis (Columns 11-13).&lt;/p&gt;
