    Gender Inequalities in the Online Dissemination of Scholars' Work

    ABSTRACT

    Recent research shows that who benefits from science depends on who gets to do science. Prior work establishes wide-ranging gender inequities in academia. Disparities at the level of earnings, support, and promotion indicate that women's research is not recognized equally to men's. Since an imbalance in scholars' visibility might have consequential downstream effects on citations and awards, the study of how female vs male scholars' research is disseminated in digital media (aka their online success) is critical to address the gender gap in science. Our large-scale analyses encompassing half a million scholars publishing in all scientific disciplines reveal that female scholars' work gets mentioned less frequently online than male scholars' work. The talk will highlight disparities across broad scientific domains, with engineering being in the lower half based on female scholar's dissemination success, below other STEM areas like biological sciences, geoscience, and chemistry. I will demonstrate that scientific impact, social capital, and gendered tie formation in co-authorship networks are associated with the online success of men across research areas and levels of success, but not of women. Finally, I will discuss the lack of understanding of the characteristics associated with female scholars' online success, which might hinder interventions from closing the gender gap in research visibility.
