Criminal justice is a relatively new, formally recognized academic field, and it is possible to examine various aspects of its development. One subject for study is the intellectual terrain of the field of criminal justice as reflected in journal publications. Concentration of the institutional backgrounds of those making the most frequent contributions to criminal justice journals was examined. A list of institutions granting doctorates to those who contributed most frequently to eight leading journals from 1991 to 1995 revealed that thirty institutions produced the scholars associated with approximately two-thirds of the manuscripts and contributions. A comparison of this list of scholars was made with the institutional origins of most-cited scholars. Some concentration of origin was identified and it is argued that it may be a limiting factor in program development as well as the character of research produced in criminal justice.
