Frank Anechiarico ’71, the Maynard-Knox Professor of Government and Law, will take over as managing editor of the journal Public Integrity (PIN) on Sept. 1. He has served on the editorial board for several years.
His job will be to oversee the peer review process, whereby submissions are sent anonymously to scholars in the field for assessment. The reviewers recommend acceptance, rejection or, as Anechiarico says, “the ever-popular ‘revise and resubmit.’”
Anechiarico said he thinks “it will be an interesting job, because it affords a view of the field from ring-side.” But he added, “I doubt it will make me any friends.”
Public Integrity is published quarterly by M.E. Sharp, Inc., a privately held publisher of books and journals in the social sciences and humanities. According to the Sharp website, PIN is “the foremost journal on ethics and leadership in all aspects of modern public service” and “features refereed articles, case studies, exemplar profiles, field reports, commentaries, and book reviews on a broad spectrum of ethical concerns in local, state, national, and international affairs.”
