New JSSAM Editor Selected

AAPOR’s Executive Council is pleased to announce that Dr. Kristen Olson from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has been selected as the new Editor-in-Chief for the Survey Methodology side of the Journal of Survey Statistics and Methodology. She will serve with current Editor-in-Chief of the Survey Statistics side, Dr. Michael Elliott from the University of Michigan.
Dr. Olson will continue the strong tradition of publishing high quality and timely methodological papers in JSSAM. Additionally, Dr. Olson plans to work to increase the impact of JSSAM by examining the scope of the journal, expanding the types of submissions, developing strategies for disseminating the journal’s content via social media, and developing strategies for building a diverse and inclusive pipeline of authors and reviewers. Dr. Olson will start reviewing manuscripts on July 1 and the transition will be finalized by end-of-year 2020.

The AAPOR Executive Council thanks Dr. Ting Yan from Westat for her service to the organization and the field during three years of excellence in the role of Editor-in-Chief of the Survey Methodology side of JSSAM.
