Two to Tango? Gender Differences in the Decisions to Publish and Coauthor

John McDowell (), Larry D. Singell and Mark Stater

Economic Inquiry, 2006, vol. 44, issue 1, 153-168

Abstract: The existence of old boy networks has long been postulated as a possible explanation for the presence of gender differences in market outcomes but with little empirical support because of the difficulty of measuring network access. This article exploits the unique attributes of academic labor markets and detailed data on individuals and jobs for PhD economists over nearly four decades. The results suggest that networks impact the joint decision to publish and coauthor, that these network effects differ by gender, and that gender differences in network access change over time as women become more well represented in a profession.
