Social Business is a double-blind peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal which seeks to provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge, experience, insights and ideas about the theory and practice of social business.

The Founding Editor of Social Business, Emeritus Professor Michael J. Baker, has indicated his intention to retire from the role of Editor.

Expressions of Interest in Editing Social Business

Expressions of interest should be sent to Dr Anne Foy by 30 July 2021 and should consist of a maximum 2 pages of A4 including:

  • A statement of Editorial intent, indicating the Editor(s) vision for the journal.
  • An indication of the Editor(s) prior experience with the editorial process, and evidence of engagement with relevant networks.
  • Proposals for soliciting contributions and commissioning special issues.

Applicants should also include a copy of their CV including a list of prior publications.

Applications from individuals or a team of individuals are equally welcome, and applicants need not be based at the same institution. The Journal peer-review process is run through the ScholarOne Manuscripts system and is set up to use an Editor/Associate Editor review model. The journal Editorial Office is able to provide extensive assistance, but applicants should ideally have institutional support for taking on such a role. Appointments would be on the basis of a 3-year term, and a small budget is available for Editor expenses.
