The Status of Women's Research in Educational Publications. (Draft Copy).
Lockheed, Marlaine E.; Stein, Sandra L.
Sex differences in the content and authorship of articles published in major educational, women's and minority journals from 1973-1977 were examined. In that five-year period, research related to women in education accounted for approximately 10% of the research published in four major educational research journals (American Educational Research Journal, Journal of Educational Psychology, Sociology of Education, and Journal of Educational Measurement); 24% of the research published in two women's journals (Sex Roles and Psychology of Women Quarterly); and 6% of the research published in two journals dealing with minority education (Journal of Negro Education and Bilingual Review). No increase in the relative number of articles related to women and education published from 1973 through 1977 was found. Articles authored by women (but not necessarily about women's education) accounted for 9%, 59% and 17% of the research published in educational, women's and minority journals, respectively. No increase in the relative numbers of articles authored or co-authored by women from 1973 through 1977 was found. (A discussion of the relationship between publications and the status of women in educational research is included). (Author/GDC)
