Elizabeth Chell reports (“Male mastheads”, Letters, 8 March) that 100 per cent of the editors of 23 journals in management and entrepreneurship are male. Not all social science disciplines are the same. In the 11 journals published by the British Psychological Society, the male-to-female ratio for the editors is approximately 50:50. However, it is a different matter for editorial boards. There is a greater proportion of men on the editorial board of the British Journal of Clinical Psychology and men exceed women as consulting/advisory editors on the advisory panels of six BPS journals that have them.
