The present study examined changes in the genders of authors, first authors, reviewers, and editorial staff over 42 years (1974-2015) in "Teaching of Psychology." Over the first 6 years of the journal's publication, 17.67% of authors and 16.5% of first authors were women, increasing to 57.83% and 44% in the most recent 6 years. From the first 6 years to the most recent 6 years, women as reviewers increased from 9.33% to 37.17% and as editorial staff from 28% to 43.5%, and the number of authors per article increased from 1.52 per article to 2.52. Percentages of women authors, first authors, editorial staff, reviewers, and PhDs earned in psychology by women over time were highly correlated.
