Abstract

Scientific production is an essential activity in universities, and this may have been compromised by the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore, it is important to explore the aspects related to scientific research production during the pandemic, such as teaching performance, hours dedicated to research, academic degree, and gender. In this article, this analysis is conducted at a private university in Lima, on undergraduate professors of the Medicine program. Documentary analysis was applied to gather data on professors for later submission to logistic and gamma regression. A correlation was found among research hours, male researchers, academic degree, and scientific production. However, there is no connection between teaching performance and scientific production in both genders. Certainly, the connection between the research dynamics and gender disparities must be the focus of the discussion, especially in a pandemic context that strengthens domestic tasks and the gender roles attached to them. It is remarkable how the bibliography devoted to the analysis of the aspects related to production, usually avoids the gender variable in their research.
