The Perceived Contribution of Academic Partners to Women's Publishing Productivity. ASHE Annual Meeting Paper.
Creamer, Elizabeth G.
This paper reports on individual, semistructured interviews with 10 women academics in the field of higher education, who volunteered information about the contributions of spouse or partner on factors associated with scholarly publishing productivity. After a brief review of the literature related to the relationships between marriage, motherhood, and productivity, and a definition of the methodology, findings are summarized and highlighted by brief quotations from respondents that comment upon such matters as the partner's role in sharing childcare and household responsibilities, collaborating with the partner in the writing process, and having a place to write. The paper concludes that for some female scholars, having an academic partner plays an important role in sustaining their commitment to scholarly writing. A table summarizes (by year and author) explanations cited in the research literature for productivity of married women. (Contains 25 references.) (CH)
