Brief communication: Gender differences in publication and citation counts in librarianship and information science research

By C.S. Penas and P. Willett

Abstract

An analysis is presented of the publications by, and citations to, 57 male and 48 female academics in five departments of librarianship and information science. After taking account of differences in subject and differences in numbers of academics, it is shown that male academics publish significantly more papers on average than do female authors, but that there is no significant difference in the numbers of citations to published papers
