  • This report represents the first regional Global State of Young Scientists (GloSYS) study. The aim of the GloSYS project is to evaluate the working conditions and obstacles faced by scientists and scholars across all disciplines early in their careers; this regional study explored these issues in the context of four countries in Southeast Asia: Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore. The study integrated three different kinds of data: pre-existing data on key indicators related to each country’s young scientist population, responses to a survey created by the GYA, and data obtained through semi-structured interviews. All-in-all, 444 young scientists completed the survey, and eighteen participated in the interviews.
