Drawing on gender biases and differences observed in academic paths, this paper aims to disentangle the gender dimension in biomedical research collaboration networks. We adopt a network approach based on the institutional diversity of nodes and the configuration of triads (coordinator, gatekeeper, consultant and liaison) as a source of diverse and non-redundant knowledge.
The recognition of the utility of the analysis of the publications for the study of the research and technological activity has carried out the bibliometrics to a great development in recent years. Its use has been generalized in scientifically more developed countries and bibliometric studies are much more required and used both by scientific activity evaluators as well as researchers. It should be noted that the contribution of some scientific disciplines, such as statistics, has been fundamental in the development of bibliometric studies.
