GENDER DIFFERENCES IN ANTI-DOPING RESEARCH GENDER DIFFERENCES IN ANTI-DOPING RESEARCH
Gender equality in science has attracted increasing attention in the last century. There is considerable evidence in the scientific literature that the academic productivity of male researchers is higher than that of females in general in terms of the number of publications and authors, citations, collaboration patterns, key author positions, membership in editorial boards, or academic positions. Although the representation and performance of women in science vary across research fields and countries. The presence, role and performance of women in science in general and women in sport science, in particular, have increased significantly in recent decades, but gender-related differences still exist and remain a global phenomenon in the field. Gendered perspectives can have an impact on research priorities, agendas, approaches, and interpretations of findings, as well as funding allocations. This portal is the outcome of a research project that examines the role of women and provides a quantitative analysis aiming at gender differences in anti-doping science.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
This project aims to investigate the gender-related trends in anti-doping sciences by exploring the relational structure of gender aspects of authorial, topical, and methodological features, and give recognition to women’s contribution to anti-doping research. In addition, the goal of the project was to reveal and analyze the characteristics and factors of the scientific impact of women’s contribution to this specific field. The data source currently used for the research is the Web of Science databases, altogether 1341 anti-doping-related publication were included in the analyses.
