One previous paper examines the impact of gender both on publication productivity and on patterns of scientific collaborations in social sciences in Turkey. Bibliographic data on local publications in Turkey is used. It consists of 7835 papers written by 6738 scientists. The findings suggest that (1) there are gender differences at publication productivity, participation, presence and contribution, that (2) there are significantly different tendencies at keeping established co-authorship ties for inter-gender and intra-gender pairs, that (3) there are significant gender differences at positions of individuals in the network structure. It is seen that while female scientists are seen to be embedded in cliques more often than males, males are more active at bridging different components in the network. The previous study exemplifies an integrated approach to better examine role of gender in scientific collaborations.
