Dr. Ling Chen Named Editor in Chief of Management Communication Quarterly
Los Angeles, CA (July 27, 2012) Dr. Ling Chen has been appointed as the incoming Editor in Chief of Management Communication Quarterly (MCQ), effective in the summer of 2012. Dr. Chen will be replacing Dr. James Barker who has served as editor for MCQ since 2006.
“Over the years, MCQ has grown into the premier journal for organizational communication scholarship and nurtured a generation of scholars and researchers working in the area and studying management and organization issues from communication perspectives,” stated Chen. “The MCQ editorship provides an opportunity for me to contribute to continuous maturity of the area in a unique and meaningful role.”
Chen has a more than decade-long history with MCQ, having served as an editorial board member and as an associate editor. Additionally, she worked as editor and editorial board member on several other publications including the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships and Discourse & Communication.
“With a strong record of success seen in our impact factor rating and journal rankings, MCQ has secured its status as the premier place for the best Organizational Communication research,” said Dr. Barker. “Professor Chen is well positioned to continue MCQ on its successful trajectory by further enhancing our global research community and by maintaining MCQ’s place as the preferred journal for Organizational Communication scholars.”
A valuable peer-reviewed journal that covers a variety of topics related to communication and organizational contexts, Management Communication Quarterly publishes the best research from a global network of scholars.
“I'd like to see continuation of the increased diversity not only in authors from different geographical localities and societies but in topics and issues about communication of organization and management from different societies and societal contexts,” said Chen. “Also important is to continue the interdisciplinary approach to communication process in organization and management.”
In her current position at Hong Kong Baptist University, Chen serves as an associate professor of Communication Studies and as the Research Graduate Student Coordinator at the School of Communication. She previously worked as the Communication Department Head and acting Dean of School. She received her BA from Fujian Normal, her MA from the University of London, her Master of Philosophy from the University of Essex, and her PhD from Ohio State.
Management Communication Quarterly (MCQ), peer-reviewed and published quarterly, is an essential resource for scholars of organizational and managerial practice and offers valuable and timely insights for professionals, consultants, and trainers. MCQ publishes conceptually rigorous, empirically-driven, and practice-relevant research from across the organizational and management communication fields and has strong appeal across all disciplines concerned with organizational studies and the management sciences. http://mcq.sagepub.com/
