Darla Moore School of Business human resources Professor Anthony Nyberg has been chosen to be one of the next associate editors for the Academy of Management Journal. He started the three-year term at the beginning of July.
In the last eight years, the Academy of Management Journal has published four of Nyberg’s articles. One of his recent articles focuses on layoffs and their effects on relationship performance. His research measured how detrimental staff turnover is based on how talented the people leaving were and how quickly they could be replaced.
The journal, the flagship journal for the management field, is published every two months. It only accepts 7 percent of the high number of articles received annually. First published in 1957, this leading management journal contains articles that employ empirical methods to detail the latest developments in management practices.
Nyberg currently serves on the editorial board for the Journal of Applied Psychology. This role, as well as the articles he has published in the Academy of Management Journal, has greatly prepared him for this new role.
“I am most looking forward to being able to help shape the conversations that are relevant to my academic community,” Nyberg said.
He anticipates that this role will impact not only the wider academic community, but also the students he teaches. His early exposure to a variety of cutting-edge research will help him steer doctoral students toward relevant areas of study as well as better prepare students overall for their professional careers.
