Call for Editor in Chief: Journal of Simulation

The OR Society invites interested parties to submit their CVs for consideration to join the Society's Journal of Simulation editorial team. (JOS)

The Journal of Simulation was founded in 2006 and publishes articles and technical notes from researchers and practitioners active in simulation. JOS encourages papers that span the breadth of the simulation process, including both modelling and analysis methodologies, and practical papers from a wide range of simulation applications in domains including manufacturing, service, defence, health care, and general commerce. JOS will particularly seek topics that are not "mainstream" in nature but interesting and evocative to the simulation community.

The journal is currently co-edited jointly by Christine Currie (University of Southampton, UK), John Fowler (Arizona State University, USA), Navonil Mustafee (University of Exeter, UK) and until recently, Loo Hay Lee (National University of Singapore, Singapore) who sadly died in March 2022. The journal's Editorial team has over thirty-five associate editors in place. 

Full information on the journal can be found at:

John Fowler has now completed two terms as editor and will be stepping down at the end of the year. We are now seeking to appoint new editors to start in 2022 to allow for a handover period.

The selected editors will be expected to have worked in the field of simulation, be able to embrace both the theoretical and practical aspects of simulation research, be able to demonstrate a clear understanding of the journal's aims and have constructive ideas on its future development to meet the challenges and needs of the subject and the Society.

The appointment is for an initial period of five years, potentially renewable beyond that. There are plans for a transitional period that includes coordination with the departing editor. An honorarium is paid to each editor. 

Articles are submitted to and managed through ScholarOne.

Please send your CV with a covering letter to Gavin Blackett, Executive Director at [email protected]. The deadline for expressions of interest is 30 June 2022.
