Faculty Data (2004-2019)
This study focuses on the number of women and men at 98 philosophy departments in the US. We present new data on the number of women and men at 50 programs ranked by the Philosophical Gourmet Report (PGR) as well as 48 programs not ranked by the PGR. We selected these programs based on the availability of the only existing historical data compiled by Julie Van Camp between 2004 and 2015 and Sally Haslinger in 2009.

JSTOR Authorship Data 1900-2009
This data is from the JSTOR network dataset, with a special focus on philosophy journals. We isolate our analysis to a part of the corpus we call the “network dataset.” This subset includes 1.8 million documents that either cited other JSTOR articles or were cited by other JSTOR articles.
We examine the numbers and proportions of women authorships in philosophy journals for historical data collected from the JSTOR network dataset dating between 1900 and 2009. We define “authorships” as author-paper pairs, where multiple authors may co-author the same paper.
Journals Data (1954-2015)
Data on the representation of women who publish in select top philosophy journals.
