LOPES, Gabriela Barroso; FERREIRA, Júlio Cesar Valente  y  AFONSO, Herlander Costa Alegre Gama. The “glass ceiling” phenomenon. Geopolitical biases of productions in indexed journals. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2024, vol.37, n.54, e301.  Epub 01-Jun-2024. ISSN 0797-5538.

The inclusion of women in the job market is a recurring subject of research and one of the phenomena observed is called “glass ceiling”, which represents the reduced degree of opportunities for professional advancement given to women. In this work, the study of this phenomenon was analyzed using bibliometric data. As a database, the Web of Science was used, whose impact is internationally recognized by academia. The results showed a convergence of citations in a few texts and a concentration of articles in journals published in countries in the Global North. There was also a high concentration of scientific production in small collaborative networks, led by researchers located in institutions in the Global North.

Palabras clave : glass ceiling; women; professional career; sexual division of labor.
