Abstract: In LIBRES Vol 19, 1, 2010 Linsay Reece-Evans reported research which examined a bibliometric analysis of gender and citation in two LIS E-Journals: LIBRES and Information Research. Reece-Evans makes the salient point that women outnumber men at a ratio of approximately 4:1 in the library and information science (LIS) field as a whole and 3:1 in academic librarianship. It is also noted that past studies suggest that male-authored LIS print journal articles outnumber female-authored articles both in number and in citations received. This is an important consideration in an environment where the amount of citations received can serve as an indication of status within the LIS profession and can affect chances for professional advancement.
