Call for Editor

JOS (without names).png

Journal of Simulation
Application Deadline:
16th August 2024

The Operational Research Society invites interested parties to submit their CVs for consideration to join the  Journal of Simulation as Co-Editor-in-Chief (JOS).


The Journal of Simulation was founded in 2006 and publishes articles and technical notes from researchers and practitioners active in simulation. JOS encourages papers that span the breadth of the simulation process, including both modelling and analysis methodologies, and practical papers from a wide range of simulation applications in domains including manufacturing, service, defence, health care, and general commerce. JOS will particularly seek topics that are not "mainstream" in nature but interesting and evocative to the simulation community.


The journal is currently co-edited jointly by Christine Currie (University of Southampton, UK), Navonil Mustafee (University of Exeter, UK), and Claudia Szabo (University of Adelaide, Australia) and Charles Macal (Argonne National Laboratory, USA). The journal's Editorial team has over thirty-five associate editors in place. 


Full information on the journal can be found at:


Christine Currie is due to step down in December 2024 as a Co-Editor of the journal having completed two five-year terms as editor. The new Co - Editor will fill this vacancy and would be expected to cover analysis methodology, including risk and uncertainty quantification, techniques for variance reduction and sensitivity analysis . Ideally the candidate will currently reside in a Mathematical Science or Statistics department. There will be a short handover and the appointment will commence on 1 January 2025.


The selected editor should be internationally recognised, be able to embrace both the theoretical and practical aspects of simulation research, be able to demonstrate a clear understanding of the journal's aims and have constructive ideas on its future development to meet the challenges and needs of the subject and the Society.


The appointment is for an initial period of five years, potentially renewable beyond that. The existing editors and the journals team will give support to help the new editor to learn more about the role during the early part of their term. An honorarium is paid to each editor. 


Articles are submitted to and managed through ScholarOne.


Please send your CV with a covering letter to Seb Hargreaves, Executive Director at The deadline for expressions of interest is Friday 16 August 2024.
