We’re delighted to announce that Dr Anita Mangan, Senior Lecturer in Organisation Studies at the University of Bristol Business School has been appointed Editor of the Journal of Co-operative Studies.

Dr Mangan’s research on co-operatives is broadly themed around social justice in organisation studies. She is currently working on projects about union co-ops, Irish credit unions’ responses to Covid-19, and the development of Bristol co-operatives and community benefit societies. She is lead of the Sustainable Production & Consumption and Inclusive Economy research group. 

The Journal of Co-operative Studies is peer-reviewed and aims to promote knowledge, research and innovation within the co-operative sector. The journal was founded in 1967 and is published by the UK Society for Co-operative Studies in Manchester, a city strongly associated with the co-operative movement since the Rochdale Pioneers. The journal has both an academic and practitioner readership and operates a green open-access policy.

The journal welcomes contributions on co-operative education, management, governance and leadership, and related subject areas of relevance to the co-operative sector. This includes worker, consumer, retail, housing, credit, insurance, information technology, environmental and other forms of co-operative endeavour; international co-operation; and other sectors within the social economy, including mutual businesses, co-operative banks and building societies, community businesses and member-based non-profits.
