Sorry I missed you on Monday. What's the situation? Should we have a quick chat in the next few days? Is there anything I can do?

That was my fault, sorry! I finally got some CFs to read, there are minor comments is like to address. but my plan is to get that done today and submit. One thing: do you have a citation for the notion that women tend to publish in lower impact journals?

That was somewhere in the stuff I read. Let me try and find it this afternoon

You are right, can't find anything about this. Just that men get cited more than women, but nothing about the types of journals they publish in. Should we change the sentence? "One possible explanation might be that women are less likely to publish in high-impact journals ..."

FYI - Johanna said she's going to read/comment by tomorrow noon, so I kinda feel like we should wait for that

Absolutely! I really value Johanna's opinion.
