Call For Editor

The Operational Research Society is inviting members to submit their CVs for consideration for joining the editorial team for the society’s flagship journal, the Journal of The Operational Research Society (JORS).

The journal is currently edited jointly by Jonathan Crook and Tom Archibald, and there is a team of over ten associated editors in place (with a possible four more to be recruited during the first half of the year). An honorarium is paid to the editor(s). 

The appointment is for an initial five years, potentially renewable for a second period, and there are plans for a transitional period. This is important to be able to meet the expectations of authors and to continue to meet review times and develop services for the authors. The number of submissions is over 1000 articles annually, with articles submitted and managed through ScholarOne.

Interested in applying?

Here are the kind of skills and attributes we would be looking for in the successful applicant:

  • Active in the community with strong networks
  • Confidence to engage with authors and researchers to solicit the highest quality submissions
  • Strong organizational skills to ensure that submissions are handled in a timely manner
  • Ability to foster positive working relationships with colleagues such as Associate Editors

Please send your CV with a covering letter and CV to Gavin Blackett, Secretary & General Manager at gavin.blackett@theorsociety.com.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 30 April 2019.


Journal of the Operational Research Society

JORS is published 12 times a year and is the flagship journal of the Operational Research Society. It is the aim of JORS to present papers which cover the theory, practice, history or methodology of OR. However, since OR is primarily an applied science, it is a major objective of the journal to attract and publish accounts of good, practical case studies. Consequently, papers illustrating applications of OR to real problems are especially welcome.
