Nominations are being sought for the position of editor of two Academy of Management publications:
Academy of Management Review (AMR)
Academy of Management Learning & Education (AMLE)
The goal of the Academy’s Board of Governors is to ensure an inclusive selection process and generate a viable list of qualified potential editors. As a member of the Academy, we ask for your recommendation for individual(s) who you deem capable and inclined to accept one of these positions of opportunity and responsibility. Nominees do not need to be current or previous associate editors of Academy of Management publications. We will contact all nominees to confirm acceptance of the recommendation to be considered for one of the editorships.
The person selected for AMR or AMLE will become editor-elect on July 1, 2014, and editor on January 1, 2015. The term of office as editor is three years.
We encourage you to contact us for details. In general, qualifications for an editor of an Academy publication include the following:
- Significant scholarly contributions in management, including publications associated with the mission of the journal.
- Extensive experience and an excellent reputation as a reviewer, an editorial board member, or an editor of a management-related journal.
- Demonstrated leadership skills, capacity to handle a demanding workload and meet deadlines, and an ability to work constructively with authors, reviewers, and the Academy's Board of Governors and staff members.
- A doctoral degree in a management-related discipline.
- A member of the Academy of Management.
- Incoming editor should be comfortable working with the Managing Editor in a long distance relationship. The Managing Editor function will be housed at the Academy's headquarters office.
- Familiarity with, and ability to use, a web based submission and review system.
There are three stages to the selection process. The Journals Committee (a committee of the Academy of Management Board of Governors) will review the nominations and will request complete applications from those that best fit the criteria. Applicants that move to the second stage will be asked to submit a detailed proposal of how they would further the journal’s goals as described in the editorial mission statement contained in each issue. It is preferred (though not absolutely required) that second-stage applicants submit a letter of support from their deans. We suggest no more than a one course teaching load per year for the entire term as editor. In the third stage, the Journals Committee will forward a recommendation to the full Board of Governors who will finalize the recommendation.
Nominations, including self-nominations, will be accepted until October 1, 2013.
