Three faculty members in the Whitman School have recently joined the editorial boards of respected journals in the fields of business and management.

Fred Easton, professor of supply chain management and director of the Robert H. Brethen Operations Management Institute, has joined the editorial board of Decision Sciences Journal (DSJ). DSJ is published on a quarterly basis and is the publication of choice for established and emerging researchers in operations/supply chain management (SCM) and information systems/technology (IT). The journal publishes research papers that address contemporary business problems while simultaneously providing managerial and/or theoretical insights into SCM and IT.

Mike Haynie, Barnes Professor of Entrepreneurship and executive director of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, has joined the editorial board of the Journal of Management Studies (JMS). Published on behalf of the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies, JMS is an interdisciplinary journal that publishes articles on organization theory and behavior and strategic and human resource management—from empirical studies and theoretical developments to practical applications. JMS offers in-depth coverage of organizational problems and organization theory, latest developments in strategic management and planning, cross-cultural comparisons of organizational effectiveness and concise reviews of the latest publications in management studies, as well as debate on topical and important issues on management.

Alexander McKelvie, assistant professor of entrepreneurship, has joined the editorial board of the Family Business Review (FBR). FBR has been published quarterly since 1988 and is a scholarly journal devoted to the exploration of the dynamics of family-controlled enterprises, including firms ranging in size from the very large to the relatively small.
