    Essential qualities sought from candidates include the following:

    • Significant scholarly contributions in any area of management studies. It is expected that applicants will identify a primary area of expertise, however given JMS' "big tent" ethos to offer a scholarly home for any area of management studies broadly understood we expect candidates to be flexible: able and willing to handle manuscripts across topics and domains that could extend beyond their primary area.
    • Extensive and recognized experience as a reviewer for management journals and, preferably, editorial experience.
    • Demonstrated administrative skills, capacity to handle a demanding workload and to meet deadlines.

    • Willingness to contribute to the success of the journal through attendance at editorial meetings and representing the journal at events and institutions.
    • Methodological expertise in quantitative and/or qualitative methods.

We are particularly keen to consider candidates with expertise in and a quantitative approach to the study of corporate governance, corporate social responsibility, diversity, equity & inclusion, human resource management, international business, organizational behaviour, strategy, technology & digitalization (listed alphabetically). We are also keen to consider candidates with expertise in and a qualitative approach to the study of work-life and of the professions.
