New editors chosen for IIE Transactions, The Engineering Economist

From staff reports

Two new editors-in-chief have been selected for two of IIE's research journals.

Ronald Askin, professor with the School of Computing, Informatics and Decision Systems Engineering at Arizona State University, will serve as the new editor-in-chief of IIE Transactions. Thomas Boucher, professor with the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Rutgers University, will serve as the new editor-in-chief of The Engineering Economist. Both men assume their positions in January 2013.

IIE Transactions is IIE’s flagship research journal. Published monthly, the journal aims to foster exchange among researchers and practitioners in the industrial engineering community by publishing papers that are grounded in science and mathematics and motivated by engineering applications.

The Engineering Economist is a quarterly refereed journal devoted to issues of capital investment. Topics include economic decision analysis, capital investment analysis, research and development decisions, cost estimating and accounting, and public policy analysis.

The editor of each publication serves a four-year, nonrenewable term. Susan Albin, a professor at Rutgers University in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, will be ending her term as editor-in-chief of IIE Transactions. Joseph Hartman, a professor and the department chair of industrial and systems engineering at the University of Florida, will be ending his term as editor-in-chief of The Engineering Economist.
