A bibliometric analysis of women's employment

ÇAKIR, Sinem
This thesis aims to analyze how contributions have been made to the literature on women's employment with a quantitative bibliometric approach. Main articles, authors, institutes, countries, journals, and most cited authors' genders of women's employment literature were determined, and how they differed in the context of developed and developing countries was discussed. As far as we know, this kind of quantitative literature review on women's employment has not been done before, and the literature differences between developed and developing countries have not been examined in this way. While the number of publications written for developed and developing countries is constantly increasing, the publications of developed countries are always more than those of developing countries. While the journals in which articles including developed countries are published are mostly sociology journals, the journals of the articles including developing countries are journals with the theme of economy and development. As a country, the USA is the country where the most publications are produced for both, while developing countries such as South Africa, in particular, stand out in the developing countries list. In terms of institutes, while there are institutes of developing countries in developing countries institute list, universal institutions such as the World Bank also publish very effectively. 75% of the most cited authors are women in developed countries, while this rate is 50% in developing countries.


Akademik dergilerin yayın kurullarında toplumsal cinsiyet temsiliyeti: Eğitim alanı örneği
Göktürk Ağın, Duygun (2022-02-01)
Bilimsel üretim süreçlerinde toplumsal cinsiyet, bilimsel üretkenlik, tanınırlık arasındaki ilişkiye yönelik mevcut literatür akademideki hiyerarşik yapılanmayı, bilimde tabakalaşmayı ve eşitsizlik biçimlerini tartışmaya açmaktadır. Bilimsel üretim süreçleri farklı eşitsizlik formlarını içermekte ve yeniden üretici mekanizmalar ile devamlılığını mümkün kılmaktadır. Bilimsel problemin tanımlanma sürecinin aktif ve sürekli öznelerinin kimler olduğu ve kimlerin temsiliyetinin bu süreçte varlığını tesis etmekte...

A survey on OR and mathematical methods applied on gene-environment networks
Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Kropat, Erik; Öztürk, Başak; Gorgulu, Zafer-Korcan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-09-01)
In this paper, we survey the recent advances and mathematical foundations of gene-environment networks. We explain their interdisciplinary implications with special regard to human and life sciences as well as financial sciences. Special attention is paid to applications in Operational Research and environmental protection. Originally developed in the context of modeling and prediction of gene-expression patterns, gene-environment networks have proved to provide a conceptual framework for the modeling of dy...
