Senior Editor

International Journal of Management and Business – IJMB


Stephen Atkins has spent most of his early adult life as a manager and industrial engineer in the spacecraft operations business and later as a behavioral scientist in the study of astronaut performance in Shuttle and Space Station environments. In addition, part of his work-life and research-life has been in race & gender relations. This led to a doctoral fellowship at Virginia Tech, where he worked within the overlap between organizational attitude measurement and social cognitions. After Virginia Tech, he attended an academic instructor course, and became an assistant management lecturer at a government polytechnic, ultimately lecturing before classrooms of engineering management students from nations of every continent. Most of his students were earning Masters degrees in logistics management or systems management. His teaching has been in areas such as organizational measurement, HRM, business research methods, aerospace ergonomics, organizational behavior, internationalization, and industrial psychology. While teaching for five years in Massey University’s business psychology program, he and his family repeatedly visited (and fell in love with) uniquely-charming Dunedin, and he now serves as Research Coordinator (Business) for Otago Polytechnic’s College for Enterprise and Development. His team mission-analysis or work-analysis efforts connect to his general research interests, these being in the nexus where social cognition overlays business psychology. For the near-to-mid-term, most of his research will be in the context of post-disaster economic-redevelopment or poverty-relief (via ).
