Leading Editor Awards 2013

Awards for Excellence

Leading Editors

The Leading Editor awards acknowledge the high commitment Editors have to their journals and reward their efforts to raise and maintain the standing of the journals. In recognition of this work, we reward the following editors:

Alex Ellinger and Glenn Richey
The University of Alabama, USA

Alex and Glenn have consistently exceeded Emerald’s Editor expectations since taking on the editorship of the SSCI ranked IJPDLM in 2010. Alex and Glenn have worked tirelessly over the past 3 years to source and invite world leading research to IJDPLM and have always re-acted enthusiastically to new marketing campaigns and ideas, such as their ‘year in review’ Editor videos on the IJPDLM homepage. Alex and Glenn have also taken a noble and service orientated stance towards IJDPLM’s author centric publishing philosophy, with initiatives such as ensuring that papers submitted to IJDPLM receive reviewer reports from colleagues based on different continents to the lead author. Alex and Glenn’s publishing philosophy is encapsulated in their editorial of IJPDLM 42.10, which focus on the key tenets of – fairness, inclusiveness, innovativeness, and timeliness. Finally, Alex and Glenn have consistently drawn on their own peer networks to promote and generate interest not only the journal which they edit, but also related titles in Emerald’s portfolio, entirely of their own behest. They set a very high standard indeed for every Editor.

Leading Book Series Editors

These awards acknowledge the high commitment Book Series Editors have to their series and reward their efforts to raise and maintain the standing of the publications. In recognition of this work, we reward the following editor:

Joseph Chen
Indiana University, USA

Professor Joseph Chen has been the Editor-in-Chief of Advances in Hospitality and Leisure since he founded it in 2004. Over the years he has made significant steps towards improving its quality, such as implementing peer review. Iain Murray, reviewing the series in Annals of Tourism Research, said: “this book belongs in the library of all hospitality, tourism, and leisure research institutions.”
Professor Chen has also made a valuable contribution to the subject community, through his research and by co-founding the International Conference on Hospitality and Leisure Applied Research (I-CHLAR). This annual event brings together hospitality academics and industry professionals in order to foster a community of mutual learning.
