Abstract

This paper attempts to provide an overview of the situation of “women in research” in the Japanese context, based on a data analysis. Then, after a brief historical analysis of promotion policy for “women in research” through successive Science & Technology Basic Plans, current policy tools are examined. A comment from a micro-level perspective, including author’s experiences as a “woman in research,” will conclude.
