In this seminar, Professor Nagore Iriberri will discuss her study investigating the role of gender in the evaluation of economic research using submissions to four leading journals. She finds that referee gender has no effect on the relative assessment of female- versus male-authored papers, suggesting that the differential biases of male referees are negligible.
