JPAM Accepting Proposals for New Editorial Home
August 15, 2012 01:43 PM
Maureen Pirog, editor of the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management's (APPAM) Journal of Policy Analysis and Management (JPAM), will reach the end of her five-year term in June 2014. APPAM is soliciting proposals from institutions interested in becoming the editorial home for the journal for the five-year period of July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2019.
The specific managerial arrangements under the next editor are open to negotiation. Regardless of the arrangements, APPAM expects that the editorial office will sustain the journal's recent excellent record regarding the timeliness of reviews (on average, less than eight to ten weeks to decision), a sizeable volume of submissions of research articles (currently 450 per year), and a strong score on the ISI Impact Factor and other similar measures of journal quality.
Any proposal set forth should include ideas on the usage of emerging technologies (electronic distribution of articles, usage of social media outlets to promote the journal, etc.) and the editor should be open to different ideas on how to get JPAM material to its intended audience.
A selection committee to be appointed by APPAM will read proposals and make a recommendation to the APPAM Policy Council in time for its meeting in Washington, D.C. on November 6, 2013.
Your proposal should be received no later than August 1, 2013. Please send the proposal via e-mail to Tara Sheehan, Executive Director, Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management, firstname.lastname@example.org.
