David Kellogg is an American political scientist who was the publisher of Foreign Affairs magazine for 25 years.[1][2][3]

The New York Times quoted Kellogg in 1998, in an article on the notable difference between Foreign Affairs and other academic journals.[4] He described how unusual it was for an academic journal to turn a profit. Under Kellogg's administration James F. Hoge Jr. had been appointed editor, and he had lead the magazine to make profits of several hundred thousand dollars, per year.

Retrieved on 2020-11-05. “According to David Kellogg, Publisher, 'This special issue of Foreign Affairs has already raised the bar for the magazine - it is the first single-themed and largest issue ever produced. The cover has added a gatefold and dramatic cover graphics. Readership (made up of 20% newsstand and 80% subscriber based) continues to grow. In addition, ad revenue for the Nov/Dec issue grew 65% year over year, quite an enviable position in the publishing business today'.”
