UCR Business Faculty: Editors of Top Journals

Six UCR Business School Faculty hold editorships with eight publications
By Laurie McLaughlin |

As the gatekeepers of significant research, journal editors have years of first-hand experience crafting high-quality papers, says John Haleblian, UCR’s associate dean, department chair and professor of management. “Six of our faculty members serve as co-editors or associate editors at eight leading journals across disciplines. This reflects the considerable depth of research talent at our business school.”

One of the newly appointed editors, Marketing Professor Thomas Kramer, associate dean of the undergraduate program, will assume a co-editor role with Journal of Consumer Psychology in January 2021. “One of the exciting aspects of being a co-editor is that I get to read the comments from reviewers who often have viewpoints different from my own based on their expertise,” says Kramer, who has been a member of various editorial boards over the years, and previously served as associate editor at the Journal of Consumer Psychology and the Journal of Consumer Research.

“Having so many faculty members at UCR’s business school serve as editors and shape their fields is impressive, especially considering we have fewer faculty members than many other schools.”
