Changing of the guard at Management Science (but papers on market design are solicited)

Here's an email announcement from Yan Chen and Axel Ockenfels about the recent change of editors at Management Science:

"We would like to update you on some recent development regarding behavioral economics at Management Science. As you may have heard, the new Editor-in-Chief, David Simchi-Levi, has decided to merge behavioral economics, judgment and decision making, and decision analysis into the newly expanded Decision Analysis Department (DA). The two of us will be the Department Editors handling behavioral economics papers within DA.

We have a terrific group of Associate Editors (AEs), including Al Roth and Richard Thaler who serve as our honorary AEs, and Björn Bartling (University of Zurich), Gary Bolton (University of Texas at Dallas), Peter Cramton (University of Cologne), Dan Friedman (University of California at Santa Cruz), Tanjim Hossain (University of Toronto), Scott Kominers (Harvard University), Dorothea Kübler (Berlin Social Science Center WZB), Katherine Milkman (University of Pennsylvania), Tanya Rosenblat (University of Michigan), Dirk Sliwka (University of Cologne), Matthias Sutter (Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods, Bonn), and Stephanie W. Wang (University of Pittsburgh).

We hope that you will continue to submit your best papers to Management Science. Please
, and note the new emphasis on (1) mechanism and market design at DA; and (2) relevance to the science and/or practice of management at the journal level.

In closing, we would like to thank Uri Gneezy and John List for bringing behavioral economics into Management Science. We hope to continue their excellent work and publish the best papers in our field.
