Dandelion Journal: Call for General Editors – deadline 8 May 2017

Call for General Editors

Dandelion Journal is seeking General Editors to join its editorial team.

Dandelion Journal was established in 2010 as a Student-Led initiative supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Journal. It publishes quality articles and reviews by post-graduate students and early career researchers from around the world; recent issues on Brevity, Ecology, Violence, The Commons, and Nostalgia have included contributions from researchers working in the United States, Canada, Italy, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom. The journal also offers a platform for experimental and artistic work in its ‘Short Circuits’ section, dedicated to showcasing work not usually included in traditional academic publishing.

As a Dandelion General Editor you will have the opportunity to manage an issue from start to finish. This will include developing a theme and issuing a call for papers; managing a team of editors; liaising with contributors; copy editing essays; web publishing; and promoting and publicising the journal.

Joining the journal now offers an exciting opportunity to be part of the migration of Dandelion to the Open Library of the Humanities publishing platform.

We invite all Birkbeck School of Arts Graduate Students to join the Dandelion Journal Editorial Team. No prior experience of publishing or editorial is necessary as training will be provided.

We encourage you to send an email explaining why and how you would like to be involved and detailing any relevant experience you have and what skills you would bring to the journal. We are particularly curious to hear your vision for Dandelion, what innovations you would introduce, and what form you envisage Dandelion taking in the future.

Email applications to mail@dandelionjournal.org by Monday 8th of May.
