Public Integrity’s New Managing Editor Effective 1 June: Jonathan Rose
Jonathan Rose, Ph.D., is a senior lecturer in Politics and Research Methodology at De Montfort University in the UK. He has a Ph.D. in Political Science from the University of Nottingham, which investigated UK citizens’ attitudes to public ethics. This Ph.D. was co-funded by the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the UK’s Committee on Standards in Public Life. The thesis formed the basis of his monograph, "The Public Understanding of Political Integrity: The Case for Probity Perception" (2014, Palgrave). Following the completion of his Ph.D., he worked as a post-doctoral fellow at Nottingham (2011-2015) on a project investigating the integrity management systems of the UK, Hong Kong and China. This project was funded by the UK’s ESRC and Hong Kong’s Research Grants Council. Since completing his Ph.D. he has published several articles and book chapters on the subjects of corruption, ethics, good governance and political trust. Jonathan has extensive experience working with policymakers and has made several evidence submissions to independent and governing regulators. This has included formally giving oral evidence before the House of Commons Committee on Standards.
We warmly welcome him to the editorial team and look forward to his leadership. Jonathan will work closely with the Associate Managing Editors and the Book/Film Review Editor. Any questions regarding the submission of manuscripts to Public Integrity
can be directed to Jonathan starting 1 June at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Richard K. Ghere will continue as part of the leadership team at Public Integrity
in the role of Associate Managing Editor. His plans are to use the extra time afforded by the less demanding position to complete a book manuscript that assesses five influential books in public administration from a variety of rhetorical perspectives and to supplement an existing article-length manuscript on public reactions to President Ford's pardon of Nixon to include considerations of the current climate of public morality. He will also continue in his role of facilitating a summer research program at the University of Dayton wherein undergraduate students pursue independent research in Malawi over a nine-week period. Richard has done an extraordinary job as Managing Editor and we have all benefited from his service and leadership. He has worked closely with Jonathan to ensure a smooth transition and we're fortunate to have them both on our team.
