The study ‘Research-Oriented Standards on Gender Equality: Implementation and Impact’ reviews the measures and outcomes of the Research-Oriented Standards on Gender Equality. The study is based on various sources of data and analytical approaches. It traces the trend in the representation of female researchers in a national and international context on the basis of official statistics and reports from the Joint Science Conference (GWK) on the current 426 higher education institutions in Germany. For the 68 member institutions of the DFG who were involved in the implementation of the Research-Oriented Standards on Gender Equality, the study examines how the number of women on the academic staff has developed and to what extent the voluntary targets have been met.
