Social Forces, v80 n4 p1253-82 Jun 2002
A study of 2,910 sociologists who received doctorates in 1972-76 found that gender differences in scholarship productivity occurred within the first 6 years of the doctorate and continued throughout the career due to different employment patterns and publication trajectories. The results support Merton's contention that context structures the display of individual merit. (Contains 53 references.) (Author/SV)
