The Nexus Between Gender Diversity and Research Performance: The Case of Public Procurement

Document Type


Publication Date



Although the nexus between performance and gender diversity has been widely researched in different contexts, we know little about the role gender diversity in co-authoring procurement research plays on research productivity. Using diversity performance literature as a theoretical backdrop and drawing on data from articles published in three procurement journals, the study runs negative binomial regressions. This study has implications for academic institutions and research team’s performance with the results demonstrating that gender diversity has trivial impact on research performance and that the publication outlet is a significant predictor of research performance.
