For over forty years, social scientists have noted and puzzled over the ‘gender gap’ in publication rates of academic scientists. In this study, the author, Robert L. Fisher, argues that men and women scientists differ in their ‘problem choice process’ and that this difference may be behind much of the difference in publication rates.
