Buitendijk, Simone & Maes, Katrien. (September 2015). Gendered research and innovation: Integrating sex and gender analysis into the research process. The LERU (2012) paper, Women, research and universities: excellence without gender bias, examined four wellknown, data-driven factors that contribute to gender inequality in European universities, and which present challenges to LERU and research-intensive universities around the world.
Geli i Fàbrega, Marina et al. (2009). Breaking the Glass Ceiling. Proposals to adjust the Role of Women in Sience (Institute for Research in Biomedicine - IRB Barcelona). Science and innovation constantly require new ideas and the best ones unquestionably emerge in a diverse environment. That is why today more than ever we need to ensure that women’s talent is involved in this process.

When Princeton professor Angus Deaton co-authored a buzzed-about report this month on dying middle-aged whites, many journalists munged the order of the names. They mentioned Deaton first, as if it were mainly his paper, and not an equal collaboration with his wife.
Harlim, Jennifer & Russell-Bennett, Rebekah. (2013). Newsletter August 2013. Women and Research. We hear from recently confirmed Dr Jennifer Harlim about her PhD journey and the lessons she learned while studying. Dr Harlim also outlines the challenges of writing a PhD concurrently with getting research publications in her insightful piece. Professor Rebekah Russell-Bennett, from Queensland University of Technology, shares her thoughts on reverse engineering a publication and offers helpful hints for her process.

(29 octubre 2016) La Exposición La otra mitad de la ciencia reconoce la autoría y la autoridad de diversas mujeres a través de sus aportaciones a la ciencia y a la técnica y restablece una genealogía femenina, negada a menudo por concepciones de la vida y del conocimiento que desatienden la dimensión social de los avances.
Knobloch-Westerwick, Silvia & Glynn, Carroll J. (February 2013). The Matilda Effect–Role Congruity Effects on Scholarly Communication. Communication Research. Abstract: Using role congruity theory as the basis for the study, an analysis of 1,020 articles published 1991-2005 in Communication Research and Journal of Communication, as well as the ISI citations these articles received and the citations these articles included, was conducted. In line with a hypothesized “Matilda effect” (underrecognition of female scientists), articles authored by female communication scientists received fewer citations than articles authored by males.
Konkiel, Stacy. (7 June 2016). Research Evaluation’s Gender Problem – and Some Suggestions for Fixing It. Digital science. Research evaluation in the sciences has a gender problem: it’s mostly based on indicators and practices that reflect an unconscious bias against women. The literature suggests that education, support, and the use of context-aware metrics may help mitigate the gender gap, in both the short and long term.
Lake, David. (4 October 2013). Gender bias in professional networks and citations. Monkey Cage - The Washington Post. The gender gap in citations in international relations identified by Daniel Maliniak, Ryan M. Powers, and Barbara F. Walter is real and, frankly, puzzling on at least two levels. Let me try to illustrate the problem, and speculate on the cause, mostly via anecdote and with a few references to the available literature on academic networking.

Our issue is completed with a thought provoking piece from Professor Lisa Farrell, RMIT University.

Sheltzer, Jason M. & Smith, Joan C. (15 July 2014). Elite male faculty in the life sciences employ fewer women. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America. Abstract: Despite efforts to recruit and retain more women, a stark gender disparity persists within academic science. Abundant research has demonstrated gender bias in many demographic groups, but has yet to experimentally investigate whether science faculty exhibit a bias against female students that could contribute to the gender disparity in academic science. In a randomized double-blind study (n = 127), science faculty from research-intensive universities rated the application materials of a student—who was randomly assigned either a male or female name—for a laboratory manager position.

Yurkiewicz, Ilana. (23 September 2012). Study shows gender bias in science is real. Here’s why it matters. Scientific American. Whenever the subject of women in science comes up, there are people fiercely committed to the idea that sexism does not exist. They will point to everything and anything else to explain differences while becoming angry and condescending if you even suggest that discrimination could be a factor. But these people are wrong. This data shows they are wrong.
