We reflect on a challenging but successful 2007, where we took over editorship of Team Performance Management in May. Thanks to Linda Wing for bringing the journal this far and to the continued support of the Editorial Advisory Board. We would like to thank the reviewers, professional scholars and practitioners, who provided high quality and timely reviews to authors. We plan to name the reviewers annually as a way of thanking them for their input to the journal. You can find the reviewers since the current editors took over in 2007 in the list below. In 2008, we will move from a single blind review to double blind review. If you are interested in reviewing for the journal in future, please do let us know.

In 2007, we published 20 articles, with first authors representing eight countries: USA (11 articles), UK (three articles) and one article each from Canada, New Zealand, Finland, Spain, India and Slovenia. Fifteen of the articles had an academic first author, with five having a practitioner first author. A wide range of team performance management topics were represented, including: group intelligence; team transactive memory; the use of IT and virtual teams; the gender composition of teams; the links to knowledge management and innovation; teams on greenfield sites, organisational structures, links to customer satisfaction; and the leadership of teams.

In 2008, we will have two special issues. The first is on “The impact of strategic performance management on team management and performance”, edited by Dr Vinh Sum Chau of Norwich Business School, University of East Anglia, UK. This will be published in June 2008. The second will be a collection of selected articles from the “International Workshop on Teamworking (IWOT11)”, which was held in Copenhagen, Denmark in September 2007. This will be published in August 2008 and is edited by the workshop organiser, Professor Christian Koch of Aarhus University, Denmark. If you have any proposals for future Special Issues, please send us your ideas for consideration. We would particularly like to encourage special issues which provide a platform for contributions from a diverse range of countries, to facilitate our aim of increasing the internationalisation of the journal.
