Meredith Honored By Ops Journal

The Journal of Operations Management has honored Jack Meredith by naming an award after the long-time professor in the Wake Forest University Schools of Business.

The inaugural “Jack Meredith Best Paper Award” ceremony will be held at the 2012 Academy of Management Conference on Aug. 5 in Boston. Meredith was the journal's editor-in-chief from 1994 to 2002, overseeing a period where the journal became the premier empirical journal in the field of operations management and supply chain management.

“The top journals in the field at that time were taking a year or two to respond to authors’ submissions," Meredith said. "When I took over [the journal], I promised a response within three months, and the papers came pouring in. A dirty trick I suppose, but I got the best papers."

Meredith is a professor of management, a Broyhill Distinguished Scholar and the chair of operations at Wake Forest Schools of Business.
