About the Role with Sport, Education and Society
Sport, Education and Society is an international journal which provides a focal point for the publication of social science research on pedagogy, policy and the body in society and the wide range of associated social, cultural, political and ethical issues in physical activity, sport and health. The journal concentrates on the forms, contents and contexts of physical education, sport and health education found in schools, colleges and other sites of formal education and considers various media (e.g., TV, film, web sites) as forms of pedagogy and reports their impact on understandings of the body in society.
Sport, Education and Society not only encourages contributions from sociologists and educationalists studying the relationships between pedagogy, ‘the body’ and society, but also from all professionals with theoretical and empirical interests relating to policy, curriculum, social inclusion, equity and identity, and progressive educational development in physical activity, health and sport.
We are looking for a new Editor-in-Chief with an academic background in sociology and education and primary interests relating to policy, curriculum, social inclusion, equity and identity, and progressive educational development in physical activity, health and sport. He, she, or they, will have 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 within a continuing busy working academic timetable.
The successful candidate will be responsible for editorial oversight and decision-making on submissions. He, she, or they, will have authority to accept articles following successful peer review, and will ensure that reviewers and authors adhere to the Journal’s Code of Publishing Ethics. There will be an agreed handover period with the out-going Editor-in-Chief to ensure seamless transition.
Taylor & Francis will provide remuneration for the role to cover any journal-related expenses including, if required, administrative or secretarial support. Taylor & Francis will also organise regular board meetings, and we will supply annual reports reflecting on the performance of the Journal. The Journal utilises an online editorial office system, Editorial Manager.
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.
The call for the role will close August 1st, 2022. The role will formally begin from January 1st, 2023 with training beginning September 1st, 2022.
