Women in science: Articles

Number of papers (grey) submitted to arXiv between January and June in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, and the fraction submitted by women (purple) and men (yellow). The contribution from women is significantly under average for 2020 with respect to the previous years, while that from men is even larger than the average value from previous years. The combination of these two effects produces a mild drop in the total production of around 8% or 1.7σ.
