Editor Search: Enterprise & Society

The Business History Conference announces its search for editor of Enterprise & Society: The International Journal of Business History. Published by Oxford University Press, Enterprise & Society is one of the world's leading journals in business history. Interdisciplinary in approach and international in scope, it offers a forum for research on the historical relations between businesses and their larger political, cultural, institutional, social, and economic contexts.
   The new editor will succeed the current editor, Philip Scranton of Rutgers University, whose final issue will be December 2014. The new editor's term starts in January 2015, runs for four years, and is renewable. Given the prevalence of electronic publication and electronic data-transmission tools (including the ScholarOne™ journal publication management system), applications from individuals outside of the United States are encouraged.
   Prospective applicants are encouraged to review the Enterprise & Society information sheet, available by contacting the journal's managing editor, Carol Lockman, at clockman@Hagley.org. Initial expressions of interest are welcome, and should be addressed to Albert Churella, Chair, Enterprise & Society Transition Committee, Social and International Studies Department, Southern Polytechnic State University, 1100 S. Marietta Pkwy., Marietta, GA, 30060-2896. Electronic submissions (in PDF format) are acceptable, and should be sent to achurell@spsu.edu.
    Formal applications should be submitted by 1 November 2012. Please see the full announcement on the BHC website for further details.
