In this paper I examine the frequency, level of quantitative sophistication, author characteristics and institutional background, and number of citations to quantitative articles published in the Australian Journal of Political Science between 2006 and 2012. Multivariate analyses indicate that authors of quantitative articles are more likely to be male than female, as are authors of non-quantitative journals articles. Quantitative research is also more likely to be conducted in collaboration, with senior academics over represented among authors. Article citations are most frequent for full professors and authors based at Group of Eight universities. Men are more likely than women to publish in the journal and to publish quantitatively sophisticated articles. However quantitative articles written by women tend to be cited more frequently than those written by men.
