Nomination for Editor
Journal of Macromarketing

The Journal of Macromarketing, now in its 29th year of publication, is the preeminent scholarly outlet for meaningful research that examines the effects of markets and marketing on society, the effects of social programs on marketing practice, marketing history, marketing systems and marketing phenomena in the aggregate, and marketing’s effects on quality of life. The Journal of Macromarketing is published by SAGE Publications, with 4 issues in each annual volume.

The Editor manages the review process and works with the policy board, reviewers, authors, conference chairs and attendees, academic societies, Sage, and other stakeholders to ensure quality scholarship and timely publication. Academic aspects are steered by the Editor, with assistance from Section Editors, Special-Issue Editors, the Macromarketing Policy Board and the Manuscript Review Board.

The new Editor will serve a term of three years, commencing January 1, 2010. A transition period will begin in July 2009.

Institutional support is required, typically in the forms of release time, secretarial assistance, and office space. Sage currently provides $10,000, to be spent at the editor’s discretion; additional support provided by Sage includes promotional materials, copyediting, online submission tools (Sagetrack/Manuscript Central), and liaising with other institutions important to the Journal. The editor is primarily responsible for the generation and acceptance quality of articles in a timely manner, and Sage is responsible for administrative matters after acceptance.

Qualified candidates will have a distinguished academic record of national/international repute. S/he will be an active macromarketing scholar, will hold the rank of associate or full professor, and will drive the Journal to further excellence and impact. Qualified candidates will submit electronic proposals detailing how they and their institutions will support the editorship, with attached letters of support from the department chair and dean. These proposals will be solicited from the Board after the date for nominations closes.

The Policy Board of the Journal will elect the next editor from the pool of nominations, at the annual Macromarketing Conference, to be held in Kristiansand, Norway, June 4-7, 2009.
