Sexual harassment in academia

An international research review

The Swedish Research Council has commissioned a research review on sexual harassment in academia from the Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research, University of Gothenburg. We want to provide an overview of current knowledge in international research. The review is based on an analysis of approximately 800 publications out of a total of 5 561 during the period 1966–2018, which were selected through an extensive search process in literature databases.

In a concluding discussion the authors of this research review present general conclusions from the entire international research field studied, with special focus on knowledge about prevalence, consequences for individuals and the challenges of the research field.
