Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to extend previous research by investigating the allocation of space (number of printed pages) by editors and co-editors of economics journals. We present evidence indicating that the average article length may be affected by the author's previously established and currently existing affiliations with editors and co-editors. Networks established in graduate school or through current employment appear to be one factor in the space allocation decision while gender does not. As a result, non-affiliated women and men authors are equally affected in the allocation of scarce journal space.
