Análisis bibliométrico de la autoría femenina en artículos originales en la revista Atencion Primaria
Objectives: To determine the percentage of female authors in original articles published during 2 periods, in the journal of AtenciÓn Primaria (Primary Care), and to examine the differences between the categories of authorship (first, last author, and co-author) between both periods. Design: Cross-sectional study. Setting: Feminine scientific production published during the periods 2007-2008 and 2017-2018. Participants: The study was focused on original articles. Main measurements: The following variables were collected in an ad hoc form: gender based on the name of the author, total number of women and men appearing as authors, and order of authorship. Absolute and relative authorship frequencies were calculated, and the 2 test was used to examine the evolution of the percentages by type of authorship and gender. Results: A total of 108 articles were analysed in 2007-2008, and 100 in 2017-2018. No statistically significant differences were observed between the mean numbers of women authors within and between periods. In 2007-2008 a total of 548 female authors were identified and 540 in 2017-2018, the percentage of female authors was 48.7% and 54.4%, respectively. Only an increase in the percentage of first authors was observed between periods. Conclusions: Practically one out of every 2 authors of original articles published in the journal AtenciÓn Primaria was female. There was also a significant increase in the percentage of female first authors between the 2 periods. Nevertheless, and despite the greater number of health workers, the number of latest female authors remain unchanged, which points to the persistence of female under-representation.
