Impact of research funding and scientific production on scientific impact: Are quebec academic women really lagging behind?
Beaudry, C., & Larivière, V. (2014). Impact of research funding and scientific production on scientific impact: Are quebec academic women really lagging behind?, Paper presented at DRUID 2014, Copenhague.
The article examines whether scientific productivity, impact factor of journals, size of collaborative teams and research funding has an influence on the propensity to receive more citations on average and whether these factors differ across genders. Using a very complete database of bibliometric indicators, we estimate instrumental variable ordinary least square regressions on the normalised citation rates of individual academics in Quebec. Our results show that although most of the indicators examined have a positive influence on citations, when it comes to gender differences, only collaboration appears slightly detrimental for women. No impact is found for productivity or funding.
