The SAGE editorial team joined members of the IACCM and the JSCAN editorial team at the Hurlingham Club in London to mark the publication of the journal’s inaugural issue in style.

The event was held in conjunction with the IACCM Europe forum, the IACCM’s annual European meeting, and conference delegates were invited to attend the launch party. With summer arriving in London, it was the perfect evening for an outdoor celebration, with a barbeque buffet, music, speeches and drinks. Tim Cummins, CEO of IACCM, welcomed everyone, introduced the journal, and talked about JSCAN Editor Tyrone S. Pistis’s initial journal idea and the collaboration with SAGE. Tyrone in turn spoke about the background for the journal, and its aims and scope, and Caroline Lock, Publisher at SAGE, talked warmly of the collaboration with IACCM, a highlight of SAGE 50th anniversary celebrations.

The aims of JSCAN is to provide an outlet for research and theory about practices that challenge the status quo in strategic contracting and negotiations, and the commercial implementation of business strategy and policy. The journal will also address the impact of contracting and negotiations on trust and ethics in business. JSCAN is open for submissions, and details of the call for papers can be found here.
