The term of the current Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of the ACM Transactions on Management Information Systems (TMIS)<http://http/tmis.acm.org/> is coming to an end, and the ACM<http://www.acm.org/> Publications Board has set up a nominating committee to assist the Board in selecting the next EiC.  TMIS was established in 2010 and has been quite selective, accepting approximately 28% of submitted papers.

Nominations, including self-nominations, are invited for a three-year term as TMIS EiC, beginning on September 1, 2017.  The EiC appointment may be renewed at most one time. This is an entirely voluntary position, but ACM will provide appropriate administrative support.

Appointed by the ACM Publications Board, Editors-in-Chief (EiCs) of ACM journals are delegated full responsibility for the editorial management of the journal consistent with the journal's charter and general ACM policies. The Board relies on the EiC to ensure that the content of the journal is of high quality and that the editorial review process is both timely and fair. He/she has final say on acceptance of papers, size of the Editorial Board, and appointment of Associate Editors. A complete list of responsibilities is found in the ACM Volunteer Editors Position Descriptions<http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/position_descriptions>. Additional information can be found in the following documents:
•         Rights and Responsibilities in ACM Publishing<http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/RightsResponsibilities>
•         ACM's Evaluation Criteria for Editors-in-Chief<http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/eic-evaluation>

Nominations should include a vita along with a brief statement of why the nominee should be considered. Self-nominations are encouraged, and should include a statement of the candidate's vision for the future development of TMIS. The deadline for submitting nominations is April 15, 2017, although nominations will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.
