The Emerald Literati Network has awarded a 2008 honor to NJIT School of Management Professor Hindy Lauer Schachter for excellence based on her contributions as a reviewer in 2007 to the Journal of Management History.
“Academic journals use peer review to ensure that they publish the best research,” she said. “The honor indicates that this journal considered me to be the most useful reviewer based on the group of international scholars who reviewed manuscripts.” In related news, next January, Schachter will become the book review editor for Public Administration Review, the premier academic journal in that field, an even more important honor.
Schachter’s research interests include public agency organizational behavior and the role of citizen participation in developing and administering public policies. Her books include Reinventing Government or Reinventing Ourselves: The Role of Citizen Owners in Making a Better Government (State University of New York Press, 1997), Frederick Taylor and the Public Administration Community: A Reevaluation (State University of New York Press, 1989), and Public Agency Communication: Theory and Practice (Nelson Hall, 1983). “Lillian Borrone: Weaving a Web to Revitalize Port Commerce in New York and New Jersey,” Public Administration Review, 2008, 68, 1, 61-67 is her most recent article.
Schachter twice chaired the section for professional and organizational development of the American Society for Public Administration. She has served on the council of the International Political Science Association’s administrative culture research group. New Jersey Department of Transportation awarded her a certificate of appreciation for her work integrating women into the transportation field. Schachter received her doctorate in public administration from Columbia University.
