Leading Editor Awards 2011

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:

Mustafa Ozbilgin
Brunel University, UK
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal

Mustafa Ozbilgin is Professor of Human Resource Management at the Brunel Business School, Brunel University (UK). His research focuses on equality, diversity and inclusion at work from comparative and relational perspectives. He has conducted field studies in the UK and internationally and his work is empirically informed. He has authored and edited ten books and published large number of papers in journals including the Academy of Management Review and the Academy of Management Learning and Education.

Professor Ozbilgin edited Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal for four years between 2006 and 2010. In this role he transformed the journal from a UK oriented title to a highly respected, international publishing outlet. On Professor Ozbilgin’s recommendation the journal’s title was changed from Equal Opportunities International in 2008 and this further enhanced its profile and relevancy. During his tenure the journal gained a reputation for exceptional author support, particularly of those experiencing the publishing process for the first time. Professor Ozbilgin also commissioned numerous high quality special issues from leading scholars in the field and considerably expanded both the journal’s Advisory and Review Boards. He founded the annual Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Conference and established a key association with the Academy of Management (Gender, Diversity and Organization Division) by way of a Best Student Award sponsorship.

Managerial Auditing Journal

Professor Cooper and Leung took over the Editorship of the Managerial Auditing Journal in 2005, and in the last five years they have done an outstanding job in developing the journal into one of the leading accounting titles and one of the best auditing journals in the world. In the five year period of their tenure, they have seen article downloads triple to almost 300,000 and have attracted an increasingly high quality, international mix of papers on all aspects of the auditing process. Most impressively, they have managed this in spite of having extremely successful academic careers away from the journal.

His contacts in the field have enabled the journal to publish key special issues that have made real statements about the need to better understand culture when conducting business internationally. Simon’s commitment to the journal led to its rapid acceptance into the Social Science Citation Index in July 2010, and a 100% increase in article usage since 2007.

Julie McLeod became full time Editor for Records Management Journal in 2005 after a successful Co-Editorship with her predecessor Catherine Hare. From this firm foundation the journal has moved from strength to strength under Julie’s energetic and intelligent direction.
