June 2018 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 2017 Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience49% of graduate students and postdocs in neuroscience are women.

For last or sole authors we take the base rate to be 39%,  the percentage of women faculty at the same meeting. We take the base rate for all authors to be the overall percentage of 45%.
