Special Topics: Looking at the Gender Gap

The special topic calls for papers on Looking at the Gender Gap and such papers will appear in Studies in Sociology of Science as a special column.

Affiliated research area: Working Productivity, Gender Difference, the Diverse Workforce


Although outreach efforts to bring more women into engineering are abundant, a large gender gap still exists. Men continue to outnumber women in engineering fields around the world, with women making up roughly 10 percent of engineers, according to the 2009 Global Women in Engineering survey by the UK Resource Centre for Women in Science, Engineering, and Technology.

That percentage has remained relatively constant for the past few years. A previous survey asked engineers about the gender gap, and 79 percent of respondents agreed that women are underrepresented in engineering, though 38 percent said the gap doesn’t matter.


In addition to the Review and Original Articles by invited speakers, we are inviting you to submit a relevant research paper on Looking at the Gender Gap for consideration. Papers will be subject to normal peer review and must comply with the Guide for Authors.

To submit papers to the “Looking at the Gender Gap” Special Topic, please go to http://www.cscanada.net. With your submission, please state clearly to the editor that your manuscripts are submitted to the Special Topic Looking at the Gender Gap.
