Smeal professor named co-editor-in-chief of leading journal

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Daniel Guide, professor of operations and supply chain management and Binder Faculty Fellow at the Penn State Smeal College of Business, has been named co-editor-in-chief of the Journal of Operations Management.

He will share editor-in-chief duties with Thomas Choi of Arizona State University.

The Journal of Operations Management, published by Elsevier, is one of the leading journals in operations and supply chain management. It publishes original empirical research that will have a significant impact on theory and practice.

As co-editors-in chief, Choi and Guide will serve as the journal's principal reviewers, determining the content of each issue. They will focus their efforts on continuing to increase the journal's quality while growing the scope of its audience.

Guide has served on the Journal of Operations Management editorial review board since 1999 and was named the journal’s best reviewer in 2007.

At Smeal, his research focuses on sustainable operations, including the development and control of closed-loop supply chains, time-based models for commercial product returns, remanufacturing, and producer responsibility legislation. His research has been supported by grants from the Carnegie Bosch Institute and the National Science Foundation.

Guide has served as a visiting research fellow at INSEAD and as a consultant on closed-loop supply chain problems to several global organizations, including Xerox, Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, Pitney Bowes, Robert Bosch Tools and the U.S. Navy.

He joined the Smeal faculty in 2002. He holds bachelor's and master's degrees from Clemson University and a doctorate from the University of Georgia.
