Researchers collaborate with same-gendered colleagues more often than expected across the life sciences

study, we test whether life sciences researchers tend to co-publish with samegendered colleagues, while controlling for the Wahlund effect as strictly as we are able. We use a recently-published dataset ... earlier studies? conclusions [ 49? 57, 62 ] using stricter methodology, and generalises their results across the life sciences.

Evidential reasoning in historical sciences: applying Toulmin schemes to the case of Archezoa

This article is a study of the role and use of evidence in the evaluation of claims in the historical sciences. In order to do this, I develop a “snapshot” approach to Toulmin schemas. This framework ... supported then eventually rejected hypothesis in evolutionary biology. From this case study, I criticize Cleland’s “smoking gun” account of the methodology of the historical sciences. I argue that Toulmin
