Journal Administration

The Journal Administrator should be your first point of contact regarding any journal-related questions you might have:

Finance and business administration

  • How do we order food for Friday’s ed board meeting?
  • We’re out of office supplies, how can I get them without paying out of pocket?
  • How much have we made in subscriptions & royalties this year?
  • Why has our subscription revenue declined so much recently?
  • Do we have enough money to continue printing two issues per year?


  • What if an author wants to change the terms of her Author Copyright Agreement?
  • Help!  Our macro isn’t working!
  • Can we adjust the number of free offprints we provide an author?
  • What do we need to submit to the printer, and in what format?

Subscriptions and circulation management

  • How many subscribers do we have now as compared to last year?
  • We received a request for a subscription to our journal, what should we do with it?
  • A subscriber indicated he never received an already published issue.
