Right here is a new paper by Donna Ok. Ginther and Shulamit Kahn:

This examine makes use of information from Tutorial Analytics to look at gender variations in promotion to affiliate professor in economics. We discovered that ladies in economics have been 15% much less more likely to be promoted to affiliate professor after controlling for cumulative publications, citations, grants and grant {dollars}. In distinction, we discovered no important gender variations in promotion in different fields together with biomedical science, bodily science, political science, arithmetic and statistics, and engineering. We separated the pattern by the analysis depth of establishments and located suggestive proof that these outcomes have been being pushed by much less research-intensive establishments.

What’s the finest mannequin for understanding this outcome?  The “ol’ boys’ community” issues extra at lower-tier establishments?  One thing else?  There doesn’t appear to be a gender tenure penalty at higher-ranked analysis establishments.
