The purpose of this paper is geared towards analyzing how gender is an indicator that impacts scientific production in the administrative sciences perpetuating the differences between genders which affect the science. Particularly, significant differences that exist in the scientific visibility of men and women in Latin America are observed, as mentioned in the Latin American Quotes in Social Sciences and Humanities website (clase based on its Spanish initials) and the Network of Scientific Magazines of Latina America, the Caribbean, Spain and Portugal (redaly based on its Spanish initials) for year 2012. The analysis is made as evidence that in scientific research, as in any other human activity, there is a gender related division in work, which should be considered in the science and technology agenda at all levels of government.
