Gender Differences on Research: The Perceptions and Use of Academic Time
Carvalho, Teresa; Santiago, Rui
Tertiary Education and Management, v14 n4 p317-330 Dec 2008
In the last years, the increasing pressure over higher education institutions to promote alternative non-state funding sources has lead to an increasing importance given to research and, more specifically to applied research. The notion that women dedicate less time to research may be seen in the new context, as a prominent threat for women to reach universities top positions. In this article, which draws from an exploratory study case of two public universities in Portugal, we examine whether there are gender differences on perceptions about time dedicated to different academic activities. Findings reveal no significant gender differences in the academics' perceptions about their work. (Contains 3 tables.)
