Ten editorial board members are being sought for the Society’s academic journal, Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers.
Transactions is one of the leading international journals for geographical research. It publishes the very best academic papers from across the breadth of the discipline that make a major theoretical, conceptual or empirical contribution to the advancement of geographical understanding.
The board structure is being reformed to give the new members hands-on experience of editing an academic journal, including inviting reviewers, making editorial decisions and implementing the journal’s strategy. They will be supported by an experienced team of editors, and the Managing Editor at the Society.
Anyone who has an interest in becoming a journal editor and may be in a position to do so in the next few years can apply. These positions are seen as a key training opportunity and are therefore especially geared towards those who have not previously held a significant editorial position. Appointments are for two years and full training will be provided for successful candidates.
Applications, which must include a copy of your CV and a 300-word statement outlining why you wish to join the editorial board, must be submitted by 9.00am on Thursday 6 January.
