Senior Editor opportunity

Cogent Social Sciences

30 April 2021

About the Role

The journal seeks to appoint a Senior Editor for the Sport section with a strong academic background and publishing experience, as well as the passion to drive the journal forward. The successful candidate will be responsible for the editorial oversight of the Sport section: coordinating the peer-review process, recruiting a team of Editors to assist with peer-review coordination, and commissioning high quality submissions to the journal.


The Senior Editor 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 system, including the journal online editorial office system, Editorial Manager, which manages the peer-review process. We will provide you with regular journal performance data to inform your strategic decision-making, and offer guidance on strategic journal development, publishing ethics, and developments within the publishing landscape.


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.


Preference will go to candidates with experience with Open Access publishing or editing academic journals, but this is not a requirement of the role.
