Call for Co-Editor-in-Chief
Solvent Extraction and Ion Exchange
About the Role
Would you like to be the Co-Editor-in-Chief of Solvent Extraction and Ion Exchange?
We are seeking a new Co-Editor-in-chief, to work alongside Dr. Bruce Moyer, who is an outstanding academic researcher or practitioner with a background in chemistry and knowledge of actinide chemistry, nuclear fuel cycle separations, and thermodynamics and has 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 and extremely rewarding. The ideal candidate is collaborative, flexible, and active in the scholarly community. They also have strong personal networks which will help shape the journal.
The successful candidate will be responsible for working with Dr. Moyer in overseeing all editorial aspects of the Journal by ensuring the highest standards of academic rigor, maintaining the submission and peer-review process via ScholarOne Manuscripts, and (with the assistance of Taylor & Francis’s Portfolio Manager) identifying strategies to enhance the quality and reputation of the Journal.
While Taylor & Francis is here to support the Journal, we look to the Editors-in-Chief to set the tone for the publication. Specifically, the Editors-in-Chief determine the Aims & Scope, appoint the Editorial Board, solicit manuscripts, maintain ethics and integrity, and create the overall vision for the journal.
Taylor & Francis will provide remuneration for the role, along with resources and reporting to reflect on the performance of the Journal and inform future strategy and direction.
Becoming the Co-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. The Editors-in-Chief are supported by an international Editorial Board who can form the core of the journal’s reviewer base, assist with the peer-review process for submitted manuscripts, promote the journal to their networks and regions, as well as help to advise on the strategic direction of the journal.
All applications will be treated as strictly confidential and will be judged on its merits without regard to the race, religion, nationality, sex, seniority, or institutional affiliation of the candidate.
Interested in applying? Here are the skills and attributes we would be looking for in a successful applicant:
• Someone who is active in the community with strong personal networks
• Confidence to engage with authors and researchers to solicit the highest quality submissions
• Strong organizational skills to ensure that submissions are handled in a timely manner
