ANNOUNCEMENT!!! The Journal of Administrative Antics: New Online Peer-Reviewed Journal
Bloggie is pleased to announce the founding of a new, and much-needed academic/professional interdisciplinary journal:
The Journal of Administrative Antics
Recognizing that the temper of our times is increasingly one of vapid self-serving excess by administrative "elites" that have adapted themselves to functioning at general social expense, this new academic and professional journal is now in the process of formation. The first issue is expected to be published in June of 2011, and thereafter will be published twice annually. Initial publication will be online with the expectation of adding a print edition sometime within the first two years.
JAA will be peer-reviewed. An editorial board is in the process of formation and will be announced in due time. The editor seeks nominations or self-nominations for the editorial board.
JAA Editor: Brian Anse Patrick, BA, MA, PHD, GED, Associate Professor, Department of Communication, University of Toledo, 4630 University Hall, Toledo, OH 43606, firstname.lastname@example.org.
JAA actively seeks submissions of high quality research articles, book reviews and essays. Although there is no methodological preference, submitted articles should be empirically-based and conform generally to either MLA or APA publication standards and be no longer in length than is necessary. Book reviews and essays should be no more than 1,000 words in length. Save for a title page, articles should contain no mention of the author's name for purposes of anonymous review.
JAA seeks to grow by rhizomatic means--horizontally in the direction of the concerns of contributors and expressed social needs. Initially the journal will be focused on university and not-for-profit administration, but will also encompass antics of government, corporate/business elites that have been placed in the stewardship roles of publicly held corporations or other arrangements of trust. Counter intuitive approaches are welcome.
JAA policy will lean toward flexibility concerning submissions. Article, book review and essay queries should be sent to the editor.
Considering the temper of the times and the severity of the problems caused and perpetuated by administrative antics, research article topics could utilize any number of approaches:
