new survey finds that sexual harassment and assaults occur frequently in the field with little consequence for the perpetrators or explicit prohibitions against such conduct The study reveals that the primary targets were young women who were harassed assaulted and even raped by people who were usually senior to them in rank although men also reported harassment “We’ve got lots and lots and lots of people having very bad experiences in the field” says evolutionary biologist Katie Hinde of Harvard University a co-author of the survey The idea for the survey arose in 2011 when biological anthropologist Kathryn Clancy of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign learned that a friend had been assaulted in the field by a colleague and a mentor had convinced her to keep quiet for the sake of his career Clancy started posting sexual harassment reports without identifying details in a blog she wrote for Scientific American and was quickly deluged with accounts of harassment from fellow researchers So Clancy teamed with three of her colleagues including Hinde to survey anthropologists on their fieldwork experiences In 2013 they reported a high incidence of sexual harassment in biological anthropology “It became really clear that this … wasn’t just an issue that occurred in the past that had been taken care of” says biological anthropologist Julienne Rutherford of the University of Illinois Chicago another co-author They decided to expand the survey to additional fields The team distributed the new survey which was designed like other surveys of sexual harassment in the workplace via e-mail and online social networks including Facebook group pages for professional societies Responses came in from 666 scientists in 30 nations About 75% were from the United States and about 75% were anthropologists and archaeologists with the rest being biologists geologists and other specialists The team validated e-mail addresses to make sure no one submitted a survey twice and did follow-up interviews with respondents who indicated a willingness to do so In a report today in PLOS ONE the researchers found that 64% of the survey respondents had personally experienced sexual harassment inappropriate or sexual remarks or jokes about physical beauty and cognitive sex differences More seriously more than 20% of respondents reported that they had personally experienced sexual assault including unwanted physical contact sexual advances or sexual contact About 22% of that group felt it would be unsafe to fight back or not give consent when they were sexually assaulted Victims were overwhelmingly young: More than 90% of women and 70% of men who had been harassed or assaulted were students postdocs or employees of lower rank than their assailants Women were 35 times more likely to report sexual harassment than men and significantly more likely to have experienced sexual assault “This is about power dynamics in a permissive environment” Clancy says Particularly disturbing to the authors was that fewer than half of the respondents recalled a code of conduct or posted set of rules for behavior at a field site where they worked Of those who did report being harassed or assaulted to their institution (including 36 women and one man) only about 19% said they were satisfied by the outcome of their reporting This frequency of harassment is consistent with other studies in the workplace including one of medical trainees that found 22% of males and 73% of females had experienced workplace sexual harassment during medical school residency Clancy and her co-authors acknowledge that their sample might be biased because victims of harassment and assault may be more likely to respond But she also notes that some victims told her personally that it was too difficult emotionally to participate in the survey “It’s devastating” says Clancy who interviewed 26 respondents in depth “Some people were too scared to relive the emotional experience” She urges team leaders to recognize that the field is an important place where scientists can shape the culture of their project and their discipline “Scientists are taught about how to do science in terms of research methodology but they are not taught how to be managers in the field” Other senior researchers say the study is a wake-up call “I’ve heard anecdotal reports … but there was no way of knowing just how big the problem is” says ecologist Meghan Duffy of the University of Michigan Ann Arbor “This study suggests it’s a big problem” “This is such a serious issue that it’s really important to bring it out” says archaeologist John Yellen archaeology program director at the National Science Foundation Astronomer John Johnson of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge Massachusetts agrees: “We are badly in need of change How can we encourage little girls to study science if their future academic careers will be marked by not only the normal struggles of solving the mysteries of the universe but also fending off professors who make unwelcome sexual advances” *Correction 17 July 12:22 pm: The story was changed to reflect the fact

so big subscription journals are doomed data analyst suggests By Lindsay McKenzieJul 27 2017 7:00 AM There is no doubt that Sci-Hub the infamous—and according to a US court illegal—online repository of pirated research papers is enormously popular (See Science’s investigation last year of who is downloading papers from Sci-Hub) But just how enormous is its repository That is the question biodata scientist Daniel Himmelstein at the University of Pennsylvania and colleagues recently set out to answer after an assist from Sci-Hub Their findings published in a preprint on the PeerJ journal site on 20 July indicate that Sci-Hub can instantly provide access to more than two-thirds of all scholarly articles an amount that Himmelstein says is “even higher” than he anticipated For research papers protected by a paywall the study found Sci-Hub’s reach is greater still with instant access to 85% of all papers published in subscription journals For some major publishers such as Elsevier more than 97% of their catalog of journal articles is being stored on Sci-Hub’s servers—meaning they can be accessed there for free Given that Sci-Hub has access to almost every paper a scientist would ever want to read and can quickly obtain requested papers it doesn’t have could the website truly topple traditional publishing In a chat with ScienceInsider Himmelstein concludes that the results of his study could mark “the beginning of the end” for paywalled research This interview has been edited for clarity and brevity Q: What made you want to look at the size of Sci-Hub’s coverage A: It all started when Sci-Hub tweeted the list of all the articles that they had stored in their repositories on March 19 I thought: “Wow we can learn so much about their operations and coverage that we couldn’t before” Most people knew that Sci-Hub provided access to some of the scholarly literature but the question was how much Q: How did you approach this calculation A: The main step was figuring out how many scholarly articles existed For that we used data from Crossref which has a database of journal identifiers or DOIs [digital object identifiers] It’s not the only one but it’s by far the most common one for scholarly publishing After making some exclusions we compiled a list of 816 million articles This step was important because it gave us the denominator for the equation Previous people who’ve looked at Sci-Hub coverage didn’t really get this step right—to see what percent of the literature Sci-Hub has you need to know the total amount Q: What were the main findings of your study A: The most simple result was that Sci-Hub contains 69% of all scholarly articles We also found that the site preferentially covers articles from closed-access publishers and high-impact journals [Editor’s Note: A breakdown can be found here] I think it’s interesting that Elsevier and the American Chemical Society had some of the highest coverage and those are the publishers that have sued Sci-Hub Maybe they realized that basically their entire corpus was in Sci-Hub There were a lot of journals where Sci-Hub has every single article Q: What about the other 31% A: Just because an article isn’t in Sci-Hub’s database that doesn’t mean it can’t get it for you We estimated that Sci-Hub was able to fulfill requests 99% of the time—that suggests the 31% of articles that aren’t covered by Sci-Hub are things that people really aren’t requesting Q: Did you look at how coverage varied by academic discipline A: Yes There was some variation between fields but I think it’s probably less than people have speculated in the past The top was chemistry with 93% coverage and at the low end was computer science at 76% The results could be linked to publishing practices in those fields—we found closed-access journals had more coverage than open access Q: Sci-Hub has faced a number of legal challenges—do you think these will stop it A: In our paper we have a graph plotting the history of Sci-Hub against Google Trends—each legal challenge resulted in a spike in Google searches [for the site] which suggests the challenges are basically generating free advertising for Sci-Hub I think the suits are not going to stop Sci-Hub Q: How do you think Sci-Hub will evolve in future A: In the paper we mentioned that there are technologies coming that would allow you to host files without any central point of failure so going forward Sci-Hub or a service like it could still provide access to all these papers but there wouldn’t be any domain or one person behind it Right now if the servers for Sci-Hub were found they could be seized and destroyed Q: Do you really foresee a time when librarians would endorse Sci-Hub over paying for journal access A: I don’t think librarians would ever endorse it given the legal issues of instructing someone to do something illegal But in a way they already do There are many libraries nowadays that can’t provide 100% access to the scholarly literature Globally it’s a pretty small percentage of universities that offer full access Q: Is there anything publishers could do to stop new papers being added to Sci-Hub’s repository A: There are things they could do but they can really backfire terribly The issue is the more protective the publishers are the more difficult they make legitimate access and that could drive people to use Sci-Hub Q: What do you hope the impact of this study will be A: I think the larger picture of this study is that this is the beginning of the end for subscription scholarly publishing I think it is at this point inevitable that the subscription model is going to fail and more open models will be necessitated One motivation for doing the study is that I want to bring that eventuality into reality more quickly Written by Agencies | Los Angeles | Published: September 10 2009 3:14 pm Related News ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star Katherine Heigl has become the latest celebrity to adopt a kidafter she
