|Editorship, ISA eSymposium
Applications: September 15, 2012.
Extended deadline: February 15, 2013
The ISA is looking for a new Editor to succeed the distinguished founding tenure of Vineeta Sinha as editor of the ISA eSymposium (previously known as the ISA E-Bulletin). It is hoped that the new editor could take over from July 2013, but the details of timing are negotiable to deal with practical circumstances. The post will be for three years in the first instance, with the possibility of renewal.
This electronically-published journal appears three times a year. It is a platform for showcasing the work, practices, ideas and voices of the diverse global community of sociologists, engaged in substantive, ethnographic, demographic, theoretical, historical and critical research, and operating out of different locations, both sociological and geographic. Recently, it has been given an enhanced digital presence to enable easier access to members, to encourage readers to be more interactive and for their opinions and reflections to be communicated to authors with greater immediacy and spontaneity.
The Editor is responsible for all editorial and academic work relating to the publication. This includes the provision of guidelines for authors on the scholarly expectations of the journal, responsibility for sourcing, selecting, reviewing and copy-editing contributions for publication, and liaison with authors, reviewers, copyeditors, editorial assistants, and the production team at Sage. Only a modest budget is available to support this work. Potential candidates for the editorship may consult Vineeta Sinha, firstname.lastname@example.org, if they have questions about the details involved.
There is no application form to be completed. Interested applicants should submit a CV which includes their posts held, major publications, ISA and other international experience, editorial experience, familiarity with digital technology, and language knowledge. A statement should also be included on their ideas about how to develop the ISA eSymposium, given its roleas part of the ISA’s portfolio of publications and services to members. In addition, some information should be provided about the departmental setting and available resources, and about local costs, including any applicable local taxes or university overhead charges.
Applications should be submitted by September 15, 2012 [extended: February 15, 2013] to
