Gender bias in publishing

Bernard C. Editorial: Gender bias in publishing: double-blind reviewing as a solution? eNeuro 22018;5(3):ENEURO.0225-18.2018

Many studies point at a gender bias in favor of males for award and acceptance of both grants and publications. At eNeuro journal there is a balance between submission and acceptance that avoids gender bias. The journal adopts a double-blind review system, i.e. any information that explicitly identifies the authors is removed at the submission stage. According to the author, this minimizes gender bias during the evaluation of the paper.
