Gender Gaps in the Evaluation of Research: Evidence from Submissions to Economics Conferences

A study of gender differences in the evaluation of submissions to economics conferences, finding that all-female-authored papers are 3.2 p.p. (6.8%) less likely to be accepted than all-male-authored papers, and the gap is entirely driven by male referees —female referees evaluate male and female-authored papers similarly, but male referees are more favorable towards papers written by men.
