Abstract

Editorial boards of cardiology journals are analyzed to find patterns of power positions in cardiology publications. The study covers the meso (journal), macro (national) and the micro (individual researcher) levels. It was confirmed that the editors are prominent members of the research community both as their publication productivity and their citation impact are concerned. It was also confirmed that the publication and citation excellence of the editors and, even more, the Editors-in-Chief is positively correlated with the standing of the journal as measured, e.g., by the impact factor.
