In Academia, Women Collaborate Less With Their Same-Sex Juniors

Co-authoring a paper with a senior faculty member down the hall can make all the difference. But at least for female psychologists, that collaborator tends to be male, even when there are female full professors available, according to a new study. The authors say that the findings may reveal yet another barrier toward women advancing in academia. The researchers honed in on psychology because of all the scientific fields they examined, it had the highest prevalence of high-ranking women. They surveyed 50 psychology departments at U.S. and Canadian universities. The researchers surveyed the psychologists’ research publications from 2008 to 2011. That’s not what the researchers found. For some senior female psychologists, the results are worrying. Welcome to Gender Action Portal. Elite male faculty in the life sciences employ fewer women.

Author Affiliations Edited* by Shirley Tilghman, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, and approved June 5, 2014 (received for review March 25, 2014) Significance Despite decades of progress, men still greatly outnumber women among biology faculty in the United States.

Elite male faculty in the life sciences employ fewer women

Here, we show that high-achieving faculty members who are male train 10–40% fewer women in their laboratories relative to the number of women trained by other investigators. These skewed employment patterns may result from self-selection among female scientists or they may result from conscious or unconscious bias on the part of some faculty members. Abstract Women make up over one-half of all doctoral recipients in biology-related fields but are vastly underrepresented at the faculty level in the life sciences. Footnotes.

The event follows last year's launch of the Administration's National Big Data R&D Initiative that has recorded significant progress and accomplishments since being introduced in March 2012. Comparison of Research Networking Tools and Research Profiling Systems. Research Networking (RN) is about using web-based tools to discover and use research and scholarly information about people and resources.

Comparison of Research Networking Tools and Research Profiling Systems

Research Networking tools (RN tools) serve as knowledge management systems for the research enterprise. RN tools connect institution-level/enterprise systems, national research networks, publicly available research data (e.g., grants and publications), and restricted/proprietary data by harvesting information from disparate sources into compiled expertise profiles for faculty, investigators, scholars, clinicians, community partners, and facilities. RN tools facilitate the development of new collaborations and team science to address new or existing research challenges through the rapid discovery and recommendation of researchers, expertise, and resources.[1][2] RN tools differ from search engines such as Google in that they access information in databases and other data not limited to web pages.

Chicago Collaboration for Women in STEM - SciVal Experts 4.5. A research networking system for women in STEM. As the process of conducting research grows more complex and the scope of scientific challenges becomes more interdisciplinary, researchers increasingly need to collaborate with experts outside their primary domains and institutions.

A research networking system for women in STEM

Research networking systems (RNS) enable the rapid discovery of experts and facilitate new collaborations and professional development opportunities by aggregating research and scholarly information about faculty members and researchers. To date, almost all RNS implementations, regardless of platform, focus only on harvesting and displaying expertise from a single institution or university system. How the expert portal works visual semantic index of weighted terms that represents the collective expertise and experience of the researcher.

This public SciVal Experts portal is a key component of the program's mission to stimulate networking and collaboration among participants.
