What will the HRDQ future be: when one turns into three?

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


With this second issue of 2016, we are honored and privileged to be given the opportunity to work together as the incoming Co-Editors of Human Resource Development Quarterly (HRDQ). In our roles as Associate Editors from 2013 to 2015, we were able to learn much from the inspirational editorship of our predecessor, Andrea D. Ellinger. Andrea, along with outgoing Managing Editor Mary Lynn Lunn, have left the journal in very good shape. We are conscious that we “stand on the shoulders of giants,” as other past Editors of this journal include Richard A. Swanson, Gary N. McLean, Ronald L. Jacobs, Darlene F. Russ-Eft, Timothy G. Hatcher, and Baiyin Yang. We have a lot to live up to but are delighted that during our term as Co-Editors, we will be supported by a strong team of outstanding individuals who combine youth and experience and have offered their talents to the service of the journal. We are grateful to Claire Gubbins and Maura Sheehan, who have agreed to serve second terms as Associate Editors, and they will be joined by Travor C. Brown, Thomas G. Reio, and Seung Won Yoon, as well as Heather Short, our new Managing Editor, and Emily Elsner Twesme, our Editorial Assistant (Social Media). We are thrilled to work together with our new editorial team!
