Recruiting for Editor
International Journal of Social Psychology
About the role
- Providing a clear vision for the direction of the journal during their tenure as Editor, as well as advancing the means intended to attain it.
- Assembling a team of Associate Editors, sufficient in number to guarantee expertise of all subdisciplines covered by the journal, as well as to carry out all manuscripts’ peer-review in the language/s admitted.
- Selecting an ample pool of competent, timely reviewers, highly literate in the language/s admitted. The journal will also provide with its current reviewer database.
- Identifying and appointing members of international renown and prestige to the Editorial Board.
- Processing 100-200 manuscripts per year (of which generally about 25% are sent for review, the remaining 75% being initially dismissed) via an online manuscript submission and peer-review management system.
International Journal of Social Psychology is a bilingual journal – to date, manuscripts are accepted in English and Spanish, and upon acceptance all articles are translated and published in both languages. However, bilingualism is not required for the position. Whether the Editor intends to use English as the only language of submission, or wishes to maintain the possibility to submit also in Spanish by relying on a Co-Editor and/or a sufficient number of Associate Editors for managing manuscripts submitted in Spanish, is an open decision to be made by the incoming Editor; FIA may provide with suggestions and assistance to this respect.
In any case, the appointed Editor should have access to a network of scholars who may become Associate Editors, members of the Board, and/or reviewers, sufficient to review manuscripts submitted in the language/s established for submission.
The appointed Editor will also have full, clear institutional support for the duration of the tenure, including additional release time, office space, utilities, use of computers and other equipment, economic support for a full time Editorial Assistant, student workers and/or other basic expenses.
As a Taylor & Francis / Routledge publication, International Journal of Social Psychology may be able to provide partial financial support in the form of a modest annual stipend.
Three years, renewable by mutual consent for further terms, starting in 2023. Usually, two three-year terms allow sufficient time to implement and see through the incoming Editor’s vision and plan for the journal.
The Editor elect and their office should be fully operational by June 1st, 2023 in order to begin reviewing new manuscripts.
