The primary goal of this study was to investigate, at a national level, the potential change in female postsecondary faculty members’ research productivity in U.S colleges and universities and compare this trend with their male counterparts from 1993 to 2004. Data for this quantitative secondary analysis study were taken from the National Study of Postsecondary Faculty (NSOPF) collected in the years of 1993, 1999, and 2004. The study indicates that female faculty published significantly fewer recent journal articles in refereed journals, produced less conference presentations, and wrote fewer career publications than male faculty in the 1993 to 2004 surveys. The data analysis also reveals that female faculty members were less engaged in research, including funded research, and spent less time on research than their male peers. The study also indicates that there is a decrease in funding for research for both genders over time.
