Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book is one of the most innovative contributions to academe for many years. Central to the scientific process is the role of the editor of scholarly journals and the processes used to evaluate the scientific contribution of research. This book is a 'must' read for all academic scholars, want-to-be editors and all those newly entering the academic community."

Professor Cary L. Cooper, CBE, Professor of Organizational Psychology and Health at Lancaster University, UK.

"This superb book is the one we have all been waiting for. Finally, four leading scholars have produced a book that opens up the black box of editing. The outstanding quality of all the contributors makes this a terrifically instructive work for junior and senior scholars alike. This marvellous volume provides the mother lode of insights into journal editing. I'll be consulting this book and sharing its wealth of knowledge with others for many, many years to come."

Christine Oliver, Professor and Henry J. Knowles Chair in Organizational Strategy, Schulich School of Business, York University, Toronto, Canada

"Editorial decisions in the organization sciences shape both the field and the careers of its members. This collection of essays by editors and former editors provides a unique look at what editors do and takes on a number of myths about the journal editing process."

Jeffrey Pfeffer, Thomas D. Dee II Professor of Organizational Behavior, Stanford University
