This study examines data collected through a survey of authors who submitted manuscripts to Public Administration Review. Information on the authors' level of education, career path, longevity in the profession, race/ethnicity, gender, and ASPA affiliation is reviewed. Results show that PAR submission rates from both practitioners and individuals of color are far lower than submissions from academicians and white authors. In fact, minority submissions are lower than their presence on the faculties of NASPAA-affiliated public affairs programs would lead one to expect. In addition, manuscripts from white authors are more likely to be accepted than those from minority authors, even when controlling for academic rank. Manuscripts from women, however, were accepted at a higher rate than those from men.
