NYU recently posted an article featuring insight from a study co-authored by Raviv Murciano-Goroff, Assistant Professor of Strategy and Innovation, exploring the challenges women face receiving credit for their work in the science field.

According to the study, females are 13% less likely than males to receive authorship credit for their work in scientific articles. Additionally, administrative data from UMETRICS found that women are less likely to be named on patents for projects completed with men. In addition to these findings, the study reveals that,

“Women were also more likely than men to report that others underestimated their contributions and that they faced discrimination, stereotyping, and bias.”

This lack of accreditation affects women at every position level in different scientific fields — from health to engineering.
