The study examines the editorial boards of ten of marketing's top journals over three time periods. The analysis covers the size of the editorial boards, the location of board members, and the network between boards. The study is significant because the composition of journal editorial boards has been shown to be linked to the degree of heterogeneity in the material published, and publication in highly ranked journals is important in assessments of research performance. Furthermore, longitudinal studies of editorial board composition are rare. Results reveal that the size of the editorials boards has grown substantially since 2004, while the degree of overlap between the boards has remained consistent. There was a small increase in international participation overall in 2008, but some journals had reduced international membership. While further research is recommended, the results may provide assistance to non-U.S.A.-based authors wishing to maximise potential for a positive reception to article submissions.
