Despite a growing interest in gender differences in scientific careers, few
studies have focused an the impact of research organization on researchers.
This article
offers a new approach to this issue by introducing bibliometric maps
combined with sociological data and interviews, taking both the research
organization and the
experiences of the individual researcher into account. The results indicate
that gender blares operate at various levels of the research organization
and are often
imbedded in seemingly gender-neutral processes and practices in the everyday
working life of researchers.
