Event type: Public lecture

Event date: Monday, 27 August 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

Event venue: Finkel Lecture Theatre, The John Curtin School of Medical Research, 131 Garran Road, ANU

This event is jointly sponsored by the ANU Joint Colleges of Science Equity and Diversity Committee, The ANU Gender Institute, and the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science. 

Despite progress, gender disparities in science persist. Women remain underrepresented in the scientific workforce and under rewarded for their contributions.

This talk will examine multiple layers of gender disparities in science, triangulating data from scientometrics, surveys, and social media to provide a broader perspective on the gendered nature of scientific communication. The extent of gender disparities and the ways in which new media are changing these patterns will be discussed.

The talk will end with a discussion of interventions and innovations that are disrupting the scholarly ecosystem.

Her most recent book (with coauthor Vincent Lariviere), Measuring Research: What Everyone Needs to Know, provides an introduction to scientometrics for a broad audience. Her research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, the Institute for Museum and Library Services, and the Sloan Foundation. She is the president of the International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics and currently serves as the Program Director for the Science of Science and Innovation Policy program of the National Science Foundation.
