Call for Letters of Interest

by sinan

Dear Members and Friends of ASHEcon:

Frank Sloan, the current Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Health Economics (AJHE), the official journal of the American Society of Health Economists (ASHEcon), will end his term as Editor-in-Chief in Spring/Summer 2018. ASHEcon is seeking to identify candidates to succeed Frank as the Editor-in-Chief (EIC), and therefore is soliciting Letters of Interest (LOIs) from individuals or teams interested in assuming this role.

ASHEcon seeks a new AJHE EIC who has a strong interest in continuing to raise the stature and quality of the journal. Candidates for EIC should be widely recognized economists with a particular emphasis on health economics. We expect that strong candidates will have some experience with the operation and editing of academic journals, will be able to articulate a strong vision for growth of AJHE, and will be able to demonstrate sufficient time and institutional support to assume this role.
