Most disciplines are usually male-dominated, so it is believed that most publications will be predominantly authored by Male authors. They are most likely to cite literature produced by their fellow male authors, since females are not properly represented in some disciplines. It would be interesting to investigate such trend using a discipline dominated by females (e.g. Nursing, Education etc) in order to identify their citation behaviour.
