PRELIMINARY STUDY OF PROFESSIONAL CONTRIBUTIONS AND PRODUCTIVITY OF WOMEN WITH DOCTORATES.
CLARK, SHIRLEY M.; SIMON, RITA J.
THE RELATIVE PRODUCTIVITY OF WOMEN PH.D'S WAS STUDIED BY COMPARING THE TEACHING AND RESEARCH CONTRIBUTION OF RECENT PH.D'S IN FOUR CATEGORIES/ (1) MARRIED WOMEN WITH PH.D'S WHOSE HUSBANDS ARE EMPLOYED AT UNIVERSITIES WITH NEPOTISM RULES, (2) MARRIED WOMEN WITH PH.D'S WHOSE HUSBANDS ARE NOT ON UNIVERSITY FACULTIES OR ARE EMPLOYED AT UNIVERSITIES WITHOUT NEPOTISM RULES, (3) UNMARRIED WOMEN WITH PH.D'S, AND (4) MEN WITH PH.D'S. THE FEMALE SAMPLE STUDIED WAS OBTAINED FROM LISTINGS AVAILABLE IN THE INDEX OF AMERICAN DOCTORAL DISSERTATIONS FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS IN THE PHYSICAL AND BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES, SOCIAL SCIENCES, HUMANITIES, AND EDUCATION. THE MALE SAMPLE WAS OBTAINED FROM THE SAME SOURCE BY SELECTING EVERY NTH NAME. THE MALE SAMPLE WAS ONE-THIRD THAT OF THE FEMALE SAMPLE BUT THE SAME PROPORTION WAS MAINTAINED IN MAJOR FIELDS. ABOUT 60 PERCENT OF THE MEN AND WOMEN RESPONDED TO A QUESTIONNAIRE. APPROXIMATELY 15 PERCENT OF THE MARRIED WOMEN BELIEVE THAT THEIR CAREERS HAVE BEEN HURT BY ANTI-NEPOTISM REGULATIONS. TEACHING DUTIES OCCUPY THE TIME OF MOST RESPONDENTS. UNMARRIED WOMEN ARE AS LIKELY TO HOLD ASSOCIATE OR FULL PROFESSORSHIPS AS MEN. MEN EARNED MORE THAN WOMEN, AND UNMARRIED WOMEN EARNED MORE THAN MARRIED WOMEN. THE MEAN NUMBER OF ARTICLES PUBLISHED BY WOMEN WHO CLAIMED TO BE AFFECTED BY ANTI-NEPOTISM RULES IS HIGHER THAN THE MEAN FOR OTHER WOMEN AND FOR MEN. (SK)
