Javed Mostafa, Professor and Director of the Carolina Health Informatics Program (CHIP), will complete his five-year term as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology (JASIST) in January 2021.
Mostafa brought extensive editorial and publishing experience when he accepted the role as editor in 2015. He had served as an editorial board member of JASIST from 2012-15 and as an associate editor for ACM Transactions on Information Systems (ACM TOIS) and ACM Transactions on Internet Technology (ACM TOIT).
During Mostafa’s tenure, JASIST maintained its reputation as the premiere journal in information science and technology. Responding to the complex nature of the field, Mostafa restructured and expanded the editorial board to ensure coverage of expertise. His editorial team was complemented by Managing Editor Julia Khanova (PhD ’13).
In the announcement of his departure as editor, the ASIS&T Board recognized Mostafa for his outreach efforts to develop junior authors and his coverage of new intellectual areas through special themes.
In addition to CHIP, Mostafa directs the Laboratory of Applied Informatics at UNC-Chapel Hill. He has a dual appointment with SILS and the UNC School of Medicine, Biomedical Research Imaging Center.
