Tom Redman receives Leading Editor award
(19 June 2006)
Tom Redman, Professor of Human Resource Management, has been announced as the recipient of a Leading Editor Award in 2006, by Emerald Publishing for his work on the journal Personnel Review.
Tom, who is also Director of Research at the Business School, has been editor of the journal since April 1995, and this year will be stepping down as editor in order to concentrate on other areas of academic life.
After spending 10 years in industry in quality, production and HR management positions, mainly with Royal Worcester Porcelain, he began researching and has published widely on many aspects of HRM, including age discrimination and trades unions.
Every year Emerald seeks to recognise the work undertaken by its editors through its Leading Editor Awards. These acknowledge the high commitment editors have to their journals and their efforts to raise and maintain the standards of the journals through nurturing new authors, networking and sharing ideas with other journal editors and promoting the journal at conferences.
Personnel Review is currently in its 35th year of publication and Professor Redman has been Editor of the journal for over ten years. During this time he has turned a low submission rate around, to the point where the journal has received more than 170 papers over the past year. He has represented the journal at many conferences over the years and will this year be attending the ACREW conference in Tuscany.
