Hugo Curiel, Emily S. L. Curiel, Alicia Roca, Alan Poling


The Mexican Journal of Behavior Analysis was examined from 1975 to 2018 to determine the proportion of authorship by women and men. Data were compiled and assessed for the percentage of authorship, per- centage of first-authored publications, percentage of publications with at least one woman, and percentage of publications with at least one man.

The data suggest that women’s participation, based on percentages of total authorship, has increased across time.
