Gender

Matching Publications to PubMed IDs

Earlier this week, I got an e-mail from Lucia Santamaria from the “Gender Gap in Science” project from the International Council for Science. They are trying to systematically measure the gender gap in a number of ways, including looking at publication records. One of the important parts of their effort is to find ways to validate methods of gender assignment or inference. Lucia was writing about some data found in the paper I wrote with with Melanie Stefan about women in computational biology.
