Dr Alfred Keller, Founding Editor of the International Journal of Quality & Reliability Management (IJQRM) and Disaster Prevention and Management (DPM), sadly passed away on 4 July 2014, aged 89.

Dr Keller worked with Emerald to launch IJQRM in 1992, while at the University of Bradford. Now in its 32nd volume, IJQRM has established itself as a leading publication in the field of quality management. The extensive contribution made by Dr Keller and his Co-editor, Dr Barrie G. Dale, played a pivotal role in laying the foundations and driving the success of the journal for the quality management community.

Emerald would like to take this opportunity to thank and acknowledge the contribution of Dr Keller and offer its sympathies to his family, friends and colleagues.
