A survey conducted by De Gruyter's Insights Team has found that the Coronavirus pandemic and resulting lockdown
has left academics with less time for research and busier than ever - with women most severely affected.

In the spring, we conducted research which found that the pandemic was making academic authors busier and more
stressed out than ever and that gender was an important factor. Six months on, have these pressures changed and if so how?
Published in December, new De Gruyter research reveals how some academic authors are weathering the Covid storm better than others.
The research digs deeper into how gender is having an impact and throws the net wider to examine factors such as life and career stage.
COVID-19 has posed an unprecedented challenge to the international scientific community. Along with the disruption faced by most of the world's population, many researchers have felt an added pressure to understand, cure and mitigate the virus. In order to gain insight into what impact COVID-19 has had on the international scientific community, their work and the implications for science, we conducted a survey with our editors, reviewers and authors in May and June 2020. In one of the largest academic surveys ever conducted, 25,307 members of our academic community participated, representing diverse countries, roles, and areas of research.
