Schisterman et al. have published, in the journal of Epidemiology, an interesting study about gender disparities in citations. The authors collected data on the current gender distribution of epidemiology departments, societies, and journal editorial boards.

If epidemiology continues to be practiced by a majority of women, it remains to be seen if these patterns will change over time.”
