Gender and the Publication Output of Graduate Students: A Case Study

Fig 2

Discipline difference in student publications by gender of student and gender of advisor (Baseline is male student and male advisor).

The productivity differences for all disciplines are the graphical representation of the marginal effects of the OLS estimation in Table 1, columns 1 and 2. The productivity differences at discipline level are the marginal effect of an OLS estimation where we interact the student and advisor gender dummies with the discipline dummy. Control for advisor productivity, number of years since starting the Ph.D., and year of Ph.D. defense are applied.
