Call for Editors, Early Career Editor and Digital Editor for REGIONAL STUDIES
The Regional Studies Association seeks to appoint three Editors, one Early Career Editor and a Digital Editor to its flagship journal, Regional Studies.
Editors (three positions available)
The Editors support the Editor-in-Chief, David Bailey (Aston University, UK), in managing the peer review of submissions in their area of expertise, enhancing the journal’s reputation as a world-leading publication in the field of regional studies, and ensuring that it is in a position to attract the best authors and papers for its readership.
Early Career Editor (one position available)
The appointment of the Early Career Editor is open to candidates within five years of the date on their PhD certificate on 3rd June 2018. The appointment is similar to the role of Editor (above) but is a mentored role and will normally have a fixed term of three years after which it will be re-advertised. Re-application as the Early Career Editor is not permitted as this position is designed to offer capacity building and training within the academy.
Digital Editor (one position available)
This is a new role to develop the journal’s digital and social media presence. It is expected that the Digital Editor will manage the journal’s social media accounts and strategy to best disseminate journal content and engage with readers and followers about the journal, trends in the field and publishing tips and queries. The Digital Editor will also be expected to oversee the peer review of a limited number of submissions to the journal to allow them to engage in day-to-day editorial processes.
The successful candidates appointed to all positions will be expected to join the RSA as Members throughout their term. Current non-Members may apply. Further details on are available from the Regional Studies Association Office and here.
Closing date: No later than 5pm (UK time) 17th May 2018
