Recruiting for Senior Editors

Cogent Education

01 March 2023

About the role

Cogent Education invites applications to the following positions:

  • Senior Editor – STEM Education
  • Senior Editor – Language Learning and Literacy

    We are excited to be recruiting two new Senior Editors on Cogent Education! Each successful candidate will be instrumental in launching a new section in one of the areas listed above and will continue in a leadership role once established.

    They will have substantial expertise in one of these areas, as well as the passion to develop and grow their section in an exciting period of change.
    They are significant roles, with high profile, but are achievable within a continuing busy working academic timetable.
    Each Senior Editor will be initially responsible for creating the aims & scope statement for their section and will promote it in their own networks and beyond to encourage submissions from a broad range of authors.

    Longer term, they will have overall editorial oversight and decision-making responsibilities on submissions to their section. They will have the 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, will organise regular board meetings, and will supply annual reports reflecting on the performance of the journal. Cogent Education utilises an online editorial office system to organise peer review (Editorial Manager).

    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.
