Peer review and gender bias: A study on 145 scholarly journals
"Scholarly journals are often blamed for a gender gap in publication rates, but it is unclear whether peer review and editorial processes contribute to it. This article examines gender bias in peer review with data for 145 journals in various fields of research, including about 1.7 million authors and 740,000 referees. We reconstructed three possible sources of bias, i.e., the editorial selection of referees, referee recommendations, and editorial decisions, and examined all their possible relationships. Results showed that manuscripts written by women as solo authors or coauthored by women were treated even more favorably by referees and editors. Although there were some differences between fields of research, our findings suggest that peer review and editorial processes do not penalize manuscripts by women. However, increasing gender diversity in editorial teams and referee pools could help journals inform potential authors about their attention to these factors and so stimulate participation by women."

covid-corona-blog #39: dito
Bei uns wird der Shutdown wieder verschärft. Das liest sich dann so:
"Bay Area health officers will implement the state's Regional Stay At Home Order in the coming days. The order instructs residents to stay at home as much as possible to limit the mixing of households, which can lead to the spread of COVID-19. It allows access to, and travel for, critical services and allows outdoor activities. The city of ... will implement the order on Monday, Dec. 7, 2020 at 12:01 a.m. In Marin County, the order will take effect on Tuesday, Dec. 8. Contra Costa, San Francisco, and Santa Clara counties will implement the order on Sunday, Dec. 6. For all public health jurisdictions, the new restrictions will remain in place until Monday, Jan. 4, 2021."
