Editor Vacancy: Marketing Intelligence and Planning

Applications for the Editorship of Marketing Intelligence and Planning are invited. This journal is a key one within the Emerald portfolio. Now entering its 26th volume and registering over 373,000 article downloads worldwide during 2006 – making it the 6th most downloaded journal in the Emerald database (the 2nd most downloaded marketing title) during 2006.

Responsibilities include:

  • Contributing to the strategic development of the journal in conjunction with the Publisher
  • Sourcing appropriate content for the journal which reflects leading international research and the latest thinking in the area. The journal positions itself at the interface between academia and practice.

  • Meeting the deadlines for delivery of manuscripts to the Publisher
  • Appointing and revising where appropriate the Editorial Advisory Board and panel of reviewers.
  • Helping with promotion of the journal through, for example, representation on Editor panels at relevant conferences.

  • What the applicant can bring to the journal in terms of other experience and personal qualities.
  • Details on how the applicant would envisage the development of the journal.
  • Given the demands of journal editorship, details of how this role would fit alongside the applicant’s existing workload would also be appreciated.
