About the Role

Would you like to be the Co-Editor of Research Papers in Education?

Research Papers in Education is looking for a new Co-Editor with an academic background in educational research, as well as the passion to drive the journal forward in an exciting period of change. It is a significant role, with high profile, but one that is achievable within a continuing busy working academic timetable.

The successful candidate will be responsible for editorial oversight and decision-making on submissions and will collaborate with a second Co-Editor to achieve this. They will have authority to accept articles following successful peer review, and will ensure that reviewers and authors adhere to the Journal’s Code of Publishing Ethics.

Taylor & Francis will provide remuneration for the role to cover any journal-related expenses and will work with the Editor to organise editorial board meetings, supplying annual reports reflecting on the performance of the Journal.

There will be an agreed handover period with the out-going Editor to ensure a seamless transition. The Journal utilises an online editorial office system to organise peer review (ScholarOne).

Becoming the editor of a journal is a rewarding and fulfilling experience where you will build your own networks, promote the research that you are passionate about, and be recognized as a leading figure within the academic community.

Interested in applying?

Here are the skills and attributes we are looking for in a successful applicant:

  • Strong professional standing in their academic community, with a high level of expertise in the field to ensure quality standards are upheld in the journal.

  • Exceptional collaboration and communication skills.

  • Someone who is active in their community with extensive and international networks.

  • Confidence to engage with authors and researchers to solicit the highest quality submissions.

  • Excellent organizational skills to ensure that submissions are handled in a timely manner.

  • The ability to foster positive working relationships with colleagues such as Associate Editors.

    The handover period with the outgoing Editor will begin from 1st August 2022 and the role will formally begin from 1st November 2022.

    Please submit your CV and a covering letter to Teresa Ward, Global Head of Portfolio detailing your interest and motivation for applying to the position.
