Professor Ali Gheissari Named Editor-in-Chief of Iranian Studies

Tuesday, June 9, 2015

Iranian Studies Journal -- I am pleased to inform you about an important new development in our organization. As you know last year the ISIS Council adopted a new set of By-Laws for the Iranian Studies journal.

According to the By-Laws, when it is time to choose a new Editor-in-Chief for the journal, a search committee is appointed by the President to present a slate of qualified candidates to the President who will then ask the ISIS Council to comment on the qualifications of the candidates.

After receiving and considering the Council’s recommendations, the President then announces the new Editor-in-Chief. As such I am now pleased to announce that beginning on November 1, 2016, Professor Ali Gheissari, Department of History, University of San Diego will take up full editorial duties as the new Editor-in-Chief of Iranian Studies.
