J. Bruce Tracey, associate professor of human resources management at the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration, has been named the new editor of the Cornell Hospitality Quarterly (CQ). His three-year term as editor begins July 1. Tracey (pictured, right) succeeds Linda Canina, also an associate professor at Cornell.

Now in its 50th year of publication, the CQ is a journal of applied research on the hospitality industry. As editor, Tracey is responsible for directing the course of the journal and overseeing the CQ's double-blind review process.

"I am very excited about taking on this new role and working with the CQ's many excellent authors," said Tracey in a statement. "I greatly appreciate the work of my predecessor, Linda Canina, who approached the journal with an eye for innovation and enhancing the journal's position. My goal is to build on Linda's efforts and those of the previous editors to publish articles that are based on rigorous research and have direct applicability to the industry."
