Academics work more (now with data)

Postby Emil Chuck » Tue Dec 13, 2005 9:19 am

Hopefully Jim Austin or another in AAAS will discuss this NSF report:
All in a Week's Work: Workweeks of Doctoral Scientists and Engineers

The report notes that in general academic scientists/engineers work more hours per week than industry or government scientists. Furthermore, the length of a work week is discipline-specific.
