Abstract

Purpose

To provide an outline of an editor's experiences in the early years of publishing IJOPM.

Design/methodology/approach

Provides a brief summary of the author's experiences.

Findings

Being a new journal, it was found that there was insufficient copy, and this was not helped by the limited number of potential authors. However, the objective of increasing the number of issues in a volume was achieved by the publication of an extra issue each year from 1985 to 1993, with papers of quality. Editorship of a journal subject to the scrutiny of academics is a challenging task.

Originality/value

Provides an introduction to the special issue.
