This webinar is the presentation by the authors of the Gender equity in health research publishing in Africa paper published in the BMJ Global Health in 2022. Join us for a short presentation and discussion about their latest paper.
[Introduction from the paper] – Women researchers find it more difficult to publish in academic journals than men, an inequity that affects women’s careers and was exacerbated during the pandemic, particularly for women in low-income and middle-income countries. We measured publishing by sub-Saharan African (SSA) women in prestigious authorship positions (first or last author, or single author) during the time frame 2014–2016. We also examined policies and practices at journals publishing high rates of women scientists from sub-Saharan Africa, to identify potential structural enablers affecting these women in publishing.
