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
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.
