We know that women are under-represented at the most senior levels of scholarly publishing, but is there also a male/female pay gap at the top?

The gender disparity at the top of scholarly publishing – and scholarly communications – is well documented. A recent article in Learned Publishing, discussed during an informal panel session at this year’s SSP conference, shows that not only are women under-represented at the top of our organizations, but also as speakers at our industry conferences. At seven major meetings in 2015, men represented on average over 60% of speakers and nearly two thirds of keynotes, and all male panels prevailed.
