Gender Disparity in Arts Administration Scholarship: A Citation Analysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Using citation analysis, this article examined 298 articles from two arts administration journals in a ten-year time period to explore gender disparity (binary) in citations and any difference in patterns between male and female authors in citing. It hypothesized female authors are more likely to cite female scholars compared to male authors. The analyses, using descriptive statistics and binomial regression models, revealed that the more female authors are included, the higher the chance of citing female scholars, confirming the hypothesis. Additionally, while female authors cite more female scholars, overall both male and female authors cite about 25 percent of female scholars. Based on existing theories, we offer several possible explanations behind this different citation pattern among male and female authors.
