Foresight: The International Journal of Applied Forecasting is an official publication of the International Institute of Forecasters (IIF). Founded in 2005 and published quarterly, it is considered by many the premier journal for practicing forecasters and planners. The journal synthesizes academic research with the insight and expertise of respected practitioners.
The IIF is now seeking a new editor-in-chief (EiC) to replace the founding editor, who has served as EiC since 2005. The candidate should have an excellent understanding across the breadth of the forecasting field, an established track record in editing papers in applied forecasting, supervisory skills to manage a part-time staff responsible for editing, design, and production and the leadership skills to oversee volunteer editorial and advisory boards. The candidate must have experience in promoting academic-practitioner collaborations and in the design and operation of practitioner conferences. They should be committed to the development of the journal as a world-leading publication of the IIF.
Foresight’s editorial process is peer-reviewed and places a strong emphasis on readability and value for the practice of forecasting in organizations. Articles include examination of forecasting processes and systems, management of the forecasting and planning functions, behavioural aspects of forecast implementation, tutorials on forecasting methods, and case studies of forecasting practices in organizations.
