The problem of publication pressure has been building for some time among the ranks of mainly young postgraduate researchers. In this round-table discussion a group of top level professors from different Belgian universities, policy makers and people from academic gender action groups will explore the possibilities to reduce the gender gap in academic achievement and discuss whether a gender oriented approach could change the publish-or-perish strategy.
