Gender differences in research productivity
Evidence from the last months' submissions to journals suggests that there is a gender difference in the impact of the corona pandemic on research productivity.
This evidence from the academic world has implications for what is likely to happen also in other areas of the economy, where people are now juggling work with domestic chores, child care and home schooling, and where they cannot meet their colleagues in real life. This is discussed by Olga Shurchkov here.
Gender segregated research networks may of course also contribute as suggested by recent figures form JEEA.
