The Journal of Social Marketing seeks regional editors

Journal of Social Marketing, Regional Editors

Expressions of interest are sought for regional editors for the Journal of Social Marketing.

The Journal of Social Marketing was launched by Emerald and founding co-editors Professor Andrew McAuley and Associate Professor Sharyn Rundle-Thiele in 2011. The Journal of Social Marketing has rapidly established itself as a leading outlet for social marketing research and is now entering Volume 4. Notably the Journal of Social Marketing has received listings on Scopus and has been ranked in the top 50% of Marketing journals by the Australian Business Deans Council receiving a B ranking. At the end of 2013 Professor Andrew McAuley is stepping down from co-editing. Sharyn Rundle-Thiele will remain as Editor in Chief for the Journal of Social Marketing.

Regional editors are sought to further grow the Journal of Social Marketing and to extend upon early successes. Key initiatives in the next two years will be to apply for ISI listing, increase journal impact and continue to secure annual Special Issues. Up to three appointments will be made for regional editors commencing January 1st 2014 for a two-year period. Each regional editor will represent one key region – Asia, Europe, Africa and/or the Americas but not Australia/New Zealand.
