Luke Holman and Errol Lloyd
How has the gender balance in authorship of biomedical academic publications changed over time?
This data tool visualises the past, present and projected future of the gender gap for publications listed on PubMed. Data can be viewed based on journals, disciplines, countries, and author position. With a slider located above the graph, you can see how the gender ratio has changed over the years and how it is projected to change in the future.
