Cote G. Collaboration between men and women in science: a bibliometric analysis of scientific activity by gender and co-authorship between men and women. Oral presentation at 2017 SciTS Conference. Clearwater Beach, FL. Jun 13, 2017. Gender and Diversity in Teams.

Leading research nations are recognizing gender issues and acting to improve gender balance throughout the research ecosystem. Although important gains have been made in gender equality in research—such as increases in the number of women enrolling in and completing STEM education, and in the professional engagement of women in STEM occupations—gender disparities persist in the research ecosystem. These disparities are more acute the higher one looks in the professional hierarchy. Reliance on bibliometric statistics for promotions and in grant competitions is rising worldwide. If women are at a disadvantage relative to their male counterparts in terms of research output, then women might very well get stuck in a vicious circle: having lower scores for bibliometric indicators reduces the chance of being funded and/or reduces the actual amount of funding secured, which in turn can reduce capacity to increase research output and scientific impact. The current understanding of gender dimensions in research output and impact is undeveloped. ScienceMetrix is working on the development of new genderdisaggregated indicators on scientific publications. This presentation will first outline some preliminary results on the participation of women in scientific publications. Men-women co-authorship will then be examined and compared to same-gender collaboration. The presentation will highlight differences in regard to team multidisciplinarity and scientific impacts, and discuss potential implications for team science.
