In this article, researchers study the gender imbalance observed for authors of scientific publications, and especially among top-cited authors.
To emphasize the main subject of the infographics, the male and female symbols are used throughout the artwork. Additionally, a very simple illustration of a man and a woman will be integrated to further highlight the subject.
The main elements of the artwork are the gender symbols used to present data. 
Since these will be the focus of the artwork, the rest of the elements should stay quite simple.
For the illustration with the face of a man and a woman, the style is minimalistic: no eyes and just lines for each.
Colors in this artwork should evoke genders so pink is used for women and blue is used for men. To modernize this color combination, the blue that has been chosen is a very light blue and the pink is a deep magenta almost similar to a red.
