JPAM Accepting Proposals for New Editorial Home

May 10, 2017 12:00 PM
APPAM is seeking proposals from institutions interested in becoming the editorial home for its flagship journal, Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, for a five-year period beginning in July 2018. Kenneth Couch, the current JPAM Editor, will step down as Editor in June of 2018. 
 
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 excellent record regarding the timeliness of reviews (most recently, on average, less than eight to ten weeks to a decision), a sizeable volume of submissions of research articles (currently about 550 per year), and a strong score on the ISI Impact Factor and other similar measures of journal quality. 
 
A selection committee to be appointed by APPAM will review proposals and make a recommendation to the APPAM Policy Council in time for its meeting in Chicago on November 1, 2017.
 
Your proposal should be received no later than August 18, 2017. Please send the proposal via e-mail to Tara Sheehan, Executive Director, Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management, tsheehan@appam.org.
