  1. The claim of gender bias in political science publishing was based on the percentage of women as authors of articles in top political science journals being lower than percentages of women in political science. However, as I review here, the data that I am aware of indicates that political science journal acceptance rates are roughly the same as or higher than submission rates for articles with a female author/co-author/lead author. It’s worth wondering why the Monkey Cage post didn’t mention these data on acceptance rates and submission rates, especially given that some of these data were discussed by the authors of the Monkey Cage post in their corresponding article (p. 442-3).
