Our study examines women's representation in editorial boards in management over a 15-year period viz a viz their representation as authors. It uses secondary data from 57 journals covering approximately 10,000 editorial board members and nearly 10,000 articles. The results show that women continue to be under-represented in editorial boards in relation to their representation as first authors of articles published in those journals. Three factors explain the under-representation of women in editorial boards: the field of study, the journal's prestige, and the editor's gender. The persistent gender imbalance in the editorial boards of many management journals in the last 15 years hinders women's ability to attain scholarly recognition and advancement and carries the risk of narrowing the nature and scope of the enquiry in management.
