London, UK (4 June, 2015) - SAGE has today announced the launch of Journal of Strategic Contracting and Negotiation (JSCAN), the official journal of the International Association for Contract and Commercial Management (IACCM). JSCAN provides an outlet for cutting edge research and theory about practices that challenge the status quo in strategic contracting and negotiations and the successful implementation of business strategy or policy.
JSCAN seeks to address the significant gap that exists between the knowledge and experiences gathered through scholarly research and theory on strategy, contracting and negotiation. It examines the everyday practices of leaders, managers and employees who engage in processes and practices of contracting and negotiating as part of their everyday working lives; be it in the private, public, or non-profit sector. The journal is to be edited by Tyrone S. Pitsis, The University of Leeds, UK; The University of Technology, Sydney, Australia, Usha C. V. Haley, West Virginia University, USA and David M. Van Slyke, Syracuse University, USA.
Speaking about the journal's launch, Tyrone Pitsis remarked:
"Journal of Strategic Contracting and Negotiation actively bridges the scholar-practice divide, which we believe will make it an invaluable resource for our audience of scholars, policy makers, executives, managers, and employees. SAGE, as one of the leading global academic publishers, offers a chance for market expertise and expansion that, together with the global membership of the IACCM, will ensure that this journal will have a truly worldwide strategic importance, creating an unparalleled impact on the future strategy of contracting and negotiation."
Karen Phillips, SAGE's Editorial Director, further commented:
"The launch of Journal of Strategic Contracting and Negotiation is a key development in the growth of our Business and Management journal portfolio, a vital part of the SAGE journal collection of over 800 journals. Tying together the first-hand knowledge gained from research and the existing strategy, contracting and negotiation theory, this journal will form an invaluable site for the exchange of scholarship within the field. We are looking forward to working with their diverse and leading editorial board to build substantially on this key body of research."
