The DZHW Scientists Survey 2016 is an online survey for full-time academic and artistic personnel at German universities, teacher training colleges, theological colleges, art and music colleges as well as medical schools. As a trend study, the survey is repeated periodically. It is a follow-up to the Scientists Survey 2010 which was carried out by the Institute for Research Information and Quality Assurance (iFQ). The iFQ merged with the DZHW in January 2016.
Both the current and the last survey focus mainly on the research conditions of academics at German universities in regard to the changes of the German science system over the last 20 years. The survey contains questions on opinions on science politics, employment and career prospects of young academics, the peer review system, merit-based resource allocation, the acquisition of external funds and working time budgets.
