The COVID-19 crisis has spurred a novel and fast-growing field in economic research. But women are not submitting new work at the same pace as their male counterparts.

It is a well-documented fact that the time between submission and publication at most journals has been increasing over the last few decades. This column documents and discusses various implications of this publication slowdown on research productivity and the careers of economics PhD recipients.

This column measures the quality of university economics research in Europe and the UK by concentrating on within-journal rankings of influential articles. The UK and Europe are doing relatively well, and top-level research output is not concentrated at half a dozen world-famous institutions. Science-funding policies by European governments should reflect this diversity.
