European Monographs in Social Psychology
17.09.2016, by Sibylle Classen in announcement
Call for a new editor from early 2017 onwards
Call ends on October 15, 2016
Dear EASP members
For many years, our colleague Rupert Brown has been the series editor on our European Monographs in Social Psychology series, published by Routledge. Rupert has done a fabulous job and it is now time to pass the baton to someone else. We are keen on ensuring that, as much as possible, nomination processes are fair and transparent, so we are issuing a call for Expression of Interest to fulfill this role.
The series editor is required to provide new leads/topics/authors for the series on a regular basis, and engage with and promote the series to the wider academic community in order to encourage the submission of new book proposals. They will need to be proactive in this role, as Routledge is aiming to publish four new books a year. The series editor will also assess manuscripts on delivery, to ensure their suitability for the series, and if needed, recommend revision or changes. The new editor will be in place in early 2017. This is a really exciting opportunity for someone to get involved in such a well-known and well regarded book series.
The ideal candidate would be someone who has published quite widely themselves, and have experience of editing books/be on a journal editorial board. Excellent English skills are crucial, since the series is published in English. They should be someone who is very active within the academic community.
Those interested in this role should send an email to Manuela Barreto at firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating their interest, motivation, and a short cv highlighting their publication and editorial record. Expressions of interest should be submitted by the 15th of October 2016. The selection will be made by our Routledge partner, Rupert Brown (former editor), and one member of the Executive Committee of EASP. The decision will take into account the criteria indicated above, as well as EASP's core value of diversity in all of our activities.
