In a sample of 162 associate professors of organization science, women in more researchoriented departments had published signiﬁcantly more during their assistant professor periods than did those in less research-oriented departments, whereas this effect was not observed for men. In more research-oriented departments, men were more likely to have had families (partners and/or dependents) in their assistant professor periods than were women. Patterns in the data suggest that women published more than men in more research-oriented departments but less than men in less research-oriented departments. Findings are discussed in light of person–organization ﬁt theories, gender theories, academic productivity, and gender differences research.
