There is a long discussion about this on daily nous, but there are MAJOR problems with this paper - or at least with implications many might draw from it. The data does not include how many women submit papers, so we have no way of knowing if women are publishing in exact proportion to their submission rates. And that might explain why women supposedly do better with non-anonymous review. Because women are actively recruited with at least one of the two journals the authors choose to write about for the non-anonymous review section (or so I have heard), then the higher acceptance rate could have nothing to do with anonymity and everything to do with higher submission rates. In short, given the data the authors used, there is not much we can conclude. The paper does, however, bring attention to projects that could be of interest if more data is gathered, so in that sense publishing it will hopefully prove valuable.
