Abstract

Who publishes in the discipline’s leading journals is a matter of intrinsic interest to political scientists. Indeed, any discipline is first and foremost about the people who practice it. A focus on who publishes also raises important questions concerning the relationship between the characteristics of authors, such as their gender, seniority, institutional affiliation, and nationality, and the knowledge they produce. To address these issues, we analyze the three leading U.S. journals dedicated fully or largely to comparative politics — Comparative Political Studies, Comparative Politics, and World Politics — over the 1989-2004 period.
