Abstract: Five library journals were analyzed for North American institutional affiliation of authors between the years 2000 and 2005 to find the institutions most frequently represented. The five journals were selected for having consistent high impact factors over five years. Of those institutions represented in the five journals, less than ten percent of academic libraries accounted for nearly forty-two percent of all author affiliations in the five highest impact journals. A list of thirty-eight libraries—the top ten percent—was compiled and correlation analysis was performed to determine if any characteristics, such as size of professional staff, Association of Research Libraries (ARL) membership, or the presence of a PhD-granting library school influenced location in the ranking.
