A result of a too much pressure to move through the world?
Viewed 3 times

Thanks for this very interesting analysis. Do you think that it could be an argument to alleviate the pressure to move away from primary faculty/university? To move is typically proposed after graduating, for a few years, before coming back with additional experience (and obtaining a higher position). The problem can be, for men as for women (but especially for women?) the concordance with social/family life.

I am not sure I understand the question or what you mean by "alleviate pressure", but I think the important think to remember is that decisions about how editors are are made by the journal's leadership. We argue they should proactively search for parity while select people because they would be good editors,

Interesting question, but pressure to change institutions appears to be only part of the problem, since there is a fall in the percentage from subject editor to associate to editor in chief (Fig.1), and I think many/most people are already past their first postdoc at the stage of becoming subject editor. I don't think there would be much, if any, pressure to relocate on someone whose career had already advanced enough to reach the associate editor stage.
