Editorial Term and Transition
Beginning July 1, 2017, the term of an Editor-in-Chief (or Co-Editors-in-Chief if there is more than one Editor-in-Chief) will be five years (e.g., July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2022).
The immediate, past Co-Editors-in-Chief will continue to serve as consultants and resources to the new Co-Editors-in-Chief, with the titles of “Co-Editor-in-Chief Emeritus” if they served the full five years of their term.
New Co-Editors-in-Chief will be selected by a committee of six members: two immediate, past Co-Editors-in-Chief, two current Co-Editors-in-Chief, and two members of JSCM’s Associate Editor (AE) Board. One AE Board member will be chosen by the two immediate, past Co-Editors-in-Chief and the second AE Board member will be chosen by the two current Co-Editors-in-Chief. If there is only one immediate, past Editor-in-Chief or one current Editor-in-Chief, that person will have two votes in selecting the new Co-Editors-in-Chief and that person will select the respective AE Board member.
Prior to the transition to a new editorial team, a call for proposals for Co-Editors-in-Chief will be issued. Proposals should describe how the new Co-Editors-in-Chief plan to:• continue to move JSCM on its upward trajectory;
• encourage submissions and publish impactful research that fits with JSCM’s mission to be a “big tent”, egalitarian journal which advances theory by publishing high quality research across a breadth of supply chain management phenomena, using a range of possible empirical methodological approaches.
In addition, the proposal and supporting documents should provide evidence of the Co-Editors-in-Chief’s:• knowledge of a broad range of empirically based, impactful supply chain management research that advances theory in the discipline;
• research record which demonstrates a strong contribution to empirical supply chain management research;
• previous editorial responsibilities such as journal editorships, special issue editorships, and/or associate editor responsibilities;
• ability to communicate editorial decisions effectively, professionally and sensitively to authors and other key stakeholders; and
• resources (both time and budgetary) – examples here include funding for the Journal’s Editorial Assistant (approximately 15 hours per week)and for
the Co-Editors-in-Chiefs’ travel to conferences; and a demonstration of the ability to meet the time commitment to actively manage the Co-Editorship
of the Journal.
