For many years, I have been interested in the gendered nature of citation. We know from scientometric research that there are big differences between disciplines in terms of quantity and style of citation practices. I am also interested in questions such as:
Are men cited more often than women?
Do women cite differently than men?
Katie Digan from Science Guide interviewed Aurélie Carlier and me about these sorts of issues. You can read the interview here (in Dutch). I’m happy to say that the article includes the same photo as here – a small piece of knitted data visualisation, demonstrating the gender bias of the work of some of my colleagues.
Together with Aurélie Carlier and other colleagues from Maastricht University, I am now working on some guidelines, so watch this space.
