Abstract

This article reports findings on the scholarly productivity of editorial boards and guest reviewers for selected social work journals. This is the first study to analyze the scholarly productivity of those who serve as guest reviewers for social work journals. Scholarly productivity was defined by the number of citation counts and articles published by editorial board members and guest reviewers for the years 1987 through 1990. As reported in prior studies, many editorial board members appeared to have modest levels of scholarly productivity as defined by citation counts and numbers of articles published. Similar findings are reported for guest reviewers. The researchers conclude that these findings are notable and have serious implications for the academic and professional credibility of social work.
