Organizer: Denise Manahan-Vaughan
Speaker gender ratio: 11 Women : 0 Men (100%)
Estimated** base rate of women in the field: 37-52%

*The NeuroNexxt initiative, a platform for female neuroscientists, was launched at this meeting.
**Method of estimation: Previously established base rate of women in cognitive neuroscience.

March 2019 Journal Watch

Methods:

See our January 2018 Journal Watch post for details on methods.

Base rates:

First authors are more likely to be graduate students or postdoctoral fellows. Using our calculations based on registration for the 2018 Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, 50% of graduate students and postdocs in neuroscience are women.

For last or sole authors we take the base rate to be 31%,  the percentage of women faculty at the same meeting. We take the base rate for all authors to be the overall percentage of 43%.
