For outstanding support and consistently high contributions to the Emerald book series, we reward the following:

Joel Baum

For his work on Advances in Strategic Management.

After 12 years of continuous service as Series Editor for Advances in Strategic Management, Joel Baum decided to stand down from the position with the 2010 volume, The Globalization of Strategy Research. During his time as Series Editor, Joel produced excellent topical volumes year after year, and always recruited an outstanding group of contributors. He worked hard to promote the series and always ensured the content was timely, relevant and of an extremely high quality. The Series’ success is testament to Joel’s tireless enthusiasm for the topic, and we are very grateful to Joel for all the hard work he has put in over the years. We welcome Brian Silverman to the role of Series Editor from 2011, and wish Joel the very best for the future. (Paragraph written by Kim Foster.)

Joel A. C. Baum is George E. Connell Chair in Organizations and Society, Professor of Strategic Management, and Associate Dean, Faculty in the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, from which he also received his PhD. He also holds a cross-appointment to the university’s Department of Sociology. The main focus of his current research is the dynamics of interorganizational relationships in diverse industry settings, including liner shipping, biotechnology, investment banking, and private military services, as well as computer-simulated environments. He served as Series Editor for Advances in Strategic Management from 1998 to 2010. He is also a founding coeditor of the journal Strategic Organization. (by Joel Baum)

Margo Mastropieri and Tom Scruggs

For their work on Advances in Learning and Behavioral Disabilities.

Margo A. Mastropieri is a University Professor and Professor of Special Education in the College of Education and Human Development. She received her Ph.D. in Special Education from Arizona State University in 1983, her M.Ed. and B.A. degrees from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Professor Mastropieri is interested in how students with disabilities learn in school and much of her research has focused on cognitive strategies designed to promote learning and retention of school-related information. She has also studied what happens during inclusive instruction with students with disabilities and suggested instructional strategies to facilitate inclusive efforts. Her publications include over 180 journal articles, 48 book chapters, and 28 co-authored or co-edited books.

Mastropieri is the editor with Tom Scruggs of the Advances in Learning and Behavioral Disabilities journal.

Tom Scruggs is University Professor and Professor of Special Education in the College of Education and Human Development. He received his PhD in 1982 from Arizona State University. His major areas of study were special education and educational psychology.
His interests include cognitive and instructional strategies for students with disabilities, and research synthesis. In addition to his own experimental research, he has conducted several traditional meta-analyses of group-experimental research literature, and has pioneered, with Margo Mastropieri, techniques for integrating single-subject, survey, and qualitative research literatures. His publication activity includes 200 journal articles and 65 equivalent articles, 52 chapters in books, and 30 co-authored or co-edited books. He has co-directed numerous federal grants totaling nearly five million dollars, in test-taking skills, peer tutoring, mnemonic strategy instruction, science and social studies education, and in undergraduate and doctoral training. His work has been widely cited by others, including over 4,500 Google Scholar citations.

Tom Scruggs and Margo Mastropieri are an excellent partnership, as evident in the continuing popularity of the series, Advances in Learning and Behavioral Disabilities. As editors they tick all the right boxes: professional, engaged, reliable, communicable, sound in judgment, as well as demonstrating a solid understanding of their subject. The volumes they put forward for publication are always on trend, consistently good and respected by the faithful readership the series has built up over the years. Editors like Tom and Margo make the job of the publisher easier by decreasing (arguably ‘sharing’) the stress whilst increasing the interest.
