Call for Editor

The Journal of Mathematical Sociology

Deadline
31 July 2021

About the Journal

The goal of the Journal of Mathematical Sociology is to publish models and mathematical techniques that would likely be useful to professional sociologists. The Journal also welcomes papers of mutual interest to social scientists and other social and behavioral scientists, as well as papers by non-social scientists that may encourage fruitful connections between sociology and other disciplines. Reviews of new or developing areas of mathematics and mathematical modeling that may have significant applications in sociology will also be considered.

 

Because Journal of Mathematical Sociology is addressed primarily to sociologists it is anticipated that most articles will be oriented toward a mathematical understanding of emergent complex social structures rather than to an analysis of individual behavior. These structures include, for example, informal groups, social networks, organizations, and global systems. Papers on sociological and statistical methods are also welcome.

About the role

We are looking for applications for an Editor in Chief with a strong academic background and publishing experience as well as the enthusiasm and vision to drive the journal forward. We will also accept applications from editorial teams. Your onboarding process and transition will begin in 2021, with an official start date of January 1, 2022.

The successful candidates will be responsible for editorial oversight and decision-making on submissions to the journal and will have the authority to accept articles following successful peer review. You will uphold the highest standards of scholarship for the journal and will ensure that reviewers and authors adhere to the Journal’s Code of Publishing Ethics.

Taylor & Francis will support you in all aspects of the role. We provide training and support on all editorial processes and systems, including the journal online editorial office system, Scholar One Manuscripts, which manages the peer-review process. We will provide you with regular journal performance data to inform your decision-making, and offer guidance on strategic journal development, publishing ethics, and developments within the publishing landscape. Taylor & Francis will provide remuneration for the role to cover any journal-related expenses. 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. It is a significant role with a high profile, but one that we believe is compatible with an existing academic timetable.

Submitting your Application

If you would like to apply for this position please forward your CV, a covering letter and a vision statement to Gabrielle Bauman, Portfolio Manager, at [email protected] Your vision statement should be no longer than two pages and should cover:

  • Where you believe the field is going, and the journal’s place within it;
  • How you would work in partnership with the editorial board;
  • How you would maintain and increase the quality of submissions;
  • How you would work with authors.
