I summarize results of a citation analysis in physics, on a sample that is dominated by papers in high energy physics. We studied two different data sets and found that in those disciplines papers with female authors receive fewer citations than papers with male authors. The difference is robust and significant. We further study the origin of this difference to the extent that bibliometric analysis allows this. We find that women in the disciplines in our sample publish fewer single-authored papers and the probability that a single-authored paper by a women is cited in a man's single-authored papers is less than the fraction of women's single-authored papers.
