Human Relations is seeking to appoint a new Editor-in-Chief, as our current Editor-in-Chief is stepping down in early 2020.

Human Relations is a leading international multidisciplinary social science journal which has been published for over 70 years. With a distinctive niche in the interdisciplinary study of the social sciences, mainly as applied to organisational and work-related settings, its focus reflects the traditions of the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations.

Human Relations is included in the FT50 list of journals used by the Financial Times in compiling the FT Research rank, included in the Global MBA, EMBA and Online MBA rankings. Human Relations has a solid Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports (ISI) ranking – the 2018 2-year and 5-year impact factors are 3.367 and 4.360 respectively (ranked: 3/104 in Social Sciences, Interdisciplinary and 54/217 in Management). Human Relations is an A* journal in the Australian Business Deans Council (ABDC) Journal Quality List and is ranked 4 in the Chartered Association of Business Schools (CABS) Academic Journal Guide 2018.

The journal is published twelve times a year, which provides distinctive opportunities to present special issues with a particular focus or theme. It enjoys a global readership and submissions, with a particular strength in North America and Europe, which remain key markets.

The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for setting and maintaining the scholarly and professional standards of the journal and for providing the strategic direction for its future development. S/he will work closely with an editorial team to manage the receipt and review of scholarly submissions and to encourage submissions and special issues. Continuous changes in technology are opening up new markets that provide scope for an innovative editor to nurture.
