We find a marginal difference in citation impact in favor of women management scholars. Women are also slightly more likely than men to author articles among the top-10{\%} most cited in their field. Yet given the sensitivity of our results to uncertainties in the data, these variations should not be overgeneralized. In the large picture, differences in citation rates appear to be a negligible factor in the reproduction of gender inequalities in management research.",
