Seeking Two Guest Editors

Frontiers in Psychology is seeking two guest editors for a special issue (Research Topic) on Negotiations. Details about the special issue involvement as a guest editor are described below.

If this opportunity may be of interest to you, please feel free to reach out to me.

Research Topics should have a team of 3 or more Guest Editors to share the editorial responsibilities. This team should include at least one quite senior researcher (e.g., Associate / Full Professor or equivalent). All Guest Editors must have significant editorial experience (minimum PhD followed by a few years of experience). You may also consider inviting an Associate Editor from our Editorial Board.

A geographically diverse team of Guest Editors will attract more contributions, and will help spread out the workload among Editors and prevent potential conflicts of interest during the review process. Your team should include colleagues affiliated with different institutions and from different countries. Our Collaborative Peer Review webpage explains more about our peer review process and our brochure overviews how to propose a Research Topic. You can also find full details about Research Topics on our About Research Topics webpage.

This is usually a project we encourage two or more experts in the field to take on together. Some of the benefits of which include:

  • Being temporarily promoted to Guest Associate Editor on our Board (and a permanent Associate Editor afterwards, should this be desirable to you).
  • Your name will be publicly acknowledged on all papers in which you are the handling editor for.
  • Having maximum visibility and dissemination of a meaningful Article Collection; highlighting important innovative areas of research to the international scientific community.
  • Access to state-of-the-art Article Metrics, and part of the worlds largest scientific social network: LOOP.

New Editor in Chief of NCMR

We are very grateful for the leadership of our current Negotiation and Conflict Management Research (NCMR) editor, Michael Gross, who has served for the past three years. We learned this past summer that NCMR’s 2017 impact factor is 01.086, the best score thus far for our journal.  NCMR continues to attract more and higher quality articles, and it is well-positioned for new leadership as Michael’s term as Editor-in-Chief comes to a close August 2019.
We are now soliciting nominations for the next editor of NCMR. The appointment is for three years; the transition will begin in early 2019 and will be completed by September 2019, when the new editor officially takes over. The new editor will be responsible for Volumes 13-15, a total of 12 issues; the first issue the new editor will oversee is January 2020.
Self-nominations are welcome. Also, please feel free to nominate colleagues and share the call in your professional networks. This role is a great way to become more involved in IACM leadership and stay abreast of the latest conflict management scholarship.
The IACM Call for Nominations for NCMR Editor is online:
More information about editorial responsibilities is available upon request.
NCMR continues to grow in its success and reputation. We are excited about moving the journal into this next stage.
We look forward to hearing from you.
