About the role

Arts & Health is seeking a dedicated Co-Editor-in-Chief for the 2021 volume year. Arts & Health provides a pioneering international forum for the publication of research, policy and best practice within the interdisciplinary field of arts and health. This fast-emerging field has developed in response to international interest regarding the multifarious ways in which the arts contribute to health, wellbeing, social inclusion and healthcare practice across a range of settings.

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.

Interested in applying? Here are the skills and attributes we would be looking for in a successful applicant:

  • 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
  • The ability to foster positive working relationships with colleagues such as Associate Editors
  • The willingness and ability to work with an established Co-Editor

 

The role will formally begin in January 2021. It is expected there will be a transition period.
