Abstract. This paper provides a ranking of the academic standing of real estate programs based on faculty representation to the editorial boards of leading core real estate journals for the years 1998 and 2003. The study shows that faculty affiliated with a relatively small group of institutions dominates editorial board representation. The study also shows by comparisons that most of the institutions that are highly ranked for editorial board representation are also highly ranked in previous studies of research productivity based on publications. By focusing only on journals that are universally recognized to be the top journals in real estate, editorial board membership as a ranking method clearly saves time and can be easily done at regular intervals.
