Why supporting women's reearcl is so important! Men Surpass Women in Publishing Research - Despite years of progress for women in science, men continue to dominate scientific publishing in nearly every country, according to new research in the journal Nature. Not only do men publish far more research than their female colleagues, but papers with men as the dominant author are more likely to be cited by other researchers.
