Unsexing citation: Closing the gender gap in global public law

Gender equality is crucial in the global public law academy for three key reasons: promoting diverse scholarship, ensuring equal opportunities for female-identifying scholars, and achieving balanced social power. Despite progress, there is still work to be done, particularly in light of the impact of COVID-19 on geographic and gender inequality. This article focuses on the citation rates of female-identifying scholars in the global public law academy. The findings reveal a gendered citation pattern, with male-author teams citing female authors less frequently. This suggests the presence of implicit bias in citation practices, emphasizing the need for gender-conscious responses.
