About the Role

We are looking for a new Co-Editor who has a background in the management of collections; as well as having the passion to drive this journal forward during an exciting period of change. It is a significant role, with a high profile; but one that is achievable while maintaining a busy academic/professional work schedule.

The successful candidate will share responsibility for editorial oversight and decision-making on submissions with another co-editor. 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. The journal publishes approx. 25 articles over four issues/batches per year and is transitioning to continuous online publication of accepted submissions. The journal employs a double-anonymous peer review process.

Taylor & Francis will provide an honorarium to contribute towards editorship-related expenses. T&F will also support the co-editors at editorial advisory board meetings and will supply annual reports reflecting on the performance of the Journal. The journal utilizes the online editorial office system, ScholarOne Manuscripts. There will be an agreed handover period with the outgoing co-editor to ensure seamless transition. Becoming the co-editor of a journal is a rewarding and fulfilling experience where you will further develop your networks, promote the research that you are passionate about, and be recognized as a leading figure within the community.
