The Macromarketing Society and Sage Publishing announce a search for new Editors for the Journal of Macromarketing

Call for Proposals: New Editors of the Journal of Macromarketing

SAGE announces the search for new Editors of the Journal of Macromarketing. This peer-reviewed, quarterly publication has been servicing the field of Macromarketing in pursuit of high-impact content since its establishment in 1981. We are currently accepting editor applications for a three-year term commencing January 1st, 2020.

The Journal of Macromarketing provides researchers, practitioners, and policy makers with the most current, comprehensive, and important research in Macromarketing. Articles explore the full depth and breadth of macromarketing scholarship. The Editor/s will be expected to work with SAGE to ensure high-quality peer review and timely and accurate delivery of manuscripts for publication.

The Editor/s will be responsible for soliciting, reviewing, and making final decisions on submissions to the Journal and will be managing all aspects of the publication and review process using the Manuscript Central platform. The Editor/s is/are expected to maintain timely and effective communication, advance Journal performance, and work toward upholding the Journal of Macromarketing’s high-quality standard.

Given the workload of the Editor of a leading journal (typically 15 hours per week for one editor), for the first time we are considering co-editors who would be expected to work together leading the Journal. Co-editorship also allows the Journal to better reflect its diverse audiences in demographics, geography, and methods. Co-editors need not apply together to be considered for the position/s.

Applicants should have a distinguished scholarly record in Macromarketing and experience in academic leadership. They should make a commitment to attend the annual Macromarketing Conference and promote the Journal and Macromarketing in general. Applicants should also possess strong organizational and management skills, the ability to work well with others, and a commitment to SAGE’s mission: believing passionately that engaged scholarship lies at the heart of any healthy society and education is intrinsically valuable. This means playing a creative role in society by disseminating teaching and research on a global scale, the cornerstones of which include good, long-term relationships; a focus on efficiency, effectiveness and equity of markets and marketing; and an ability to combine quality and innovation.

The Macromarketing Society would like to see the Journal grow its number of submissions, move to six issues per year, and increase its impact factor. The Editor/s will play a key role in these endeavors.

SAGE provides the Journal of Macromarketing with editorial support and a stipend to advance the Journal, but the institution that hosts the Journal will also be expected to provide support for the Editor/s and the journal office. Your application should indicate the expected level of institutional support, which might come in the form of release time, travel funds, summer salary, office space, utilities, the use of computers and other office equipment, support for a full time Managing Editor, student workers, and/or other basic expenses.

Applicants should send a letter of application, which includes their vision for the future of the

Journal and a description of their qualifications for the editorship. Applicants should also include copies of their CV and documentation indicating prospective institutional support.

Applications, nominations, and requests for additional information should be sent electronically to Allison Leung, Publishing Editor, at Allison.Leung@sagepub.com. Please put “the Journal of Macromarketing Editor/s Application” in the subject line of your email.
