Recent editorial changes at QROM

Article Type: Editorial From: Qualitative Research in Organizations and Management: An International Journal, Volume 6, Issue 2.

After several years of dedication and hard work at QROM, Professor Julie Wolfram Cox has decided to step down as Associate Editor. We are very grateful for Julie's invaluable contribution in the role and wish her all the best as she moves on into new areas.

We now welcome three new Associate Editors to the journal. Dr Ewa Wikstrom is Associate Professor at the University of Gothenberg in Sweden, where her research interests lie in organizational communication and leadership, particularly in healthcare. Also joining us is Juhani Vaivio, who is Professor of Accounting, in the Aalto School of Economics, Finland, and takes a particular interest in qualitative approaches in that discipline. Dr Barbara Simpson from Strathclyde University adopts a social constructionist and relational approach to understanding change, innovation and knowledge in diverse organizational contexts. We welcome all three to QROM and are very pleased that QROM authors now have access to the special expertise of these knowledgeable and helpful academics.

We also have a new book reviews editor. Dr Kathryn Haynes has taken over from Dr Paula Hyde, who has had to step down due to other commitments. We thank Paula for her hard work. Kathryn is Reader in Accounting at Aston Business School, where her research has focused on gender and identity in professional services, having particular expertise in reflexive research methodologies. If readers of QROM have any suggestions for books to review or wish to submit a review essay, please do contact Kathryn at
