Abstract This study examined the geographical diversity and publication patterns of editors and editorial board members in communication journals. The results indicated that the diversity of the editorial community was related to the journal’s affiliated association, international orientation, and interdisciplinary nature. As for the publications, publishing in the editors’ and editorial board members’ own journals was not a norm. In addition, the type of their publications was related to the number of authors; an editor or an editorial board member is more likely to publish an empirical paper than a non-empirical one when it is written with other scholars. As for citations, the average citation count of the endogenous publications was below the journals’ citation count per publication. Furthermore, the endogenous publication’s total number of citations was not related to whether the editors and editorial board members were affiliated to institutions located in the United States. However, the journals’ affiliated associations, the number of authors, and the publication type and year were related to the total number of citations.
