Exchanges, interdisciplinary journal issue 9

An exciting opportunity for a small number of new Editorial Board Members has arisen on the Exchanges journal (ISSN 2053-9665). This title is an established, early-career focussed, scholar-led, open-access, interdisciplinary journal, published by the Institute of Advanced Study, at the University of Warwick, UK. Interest is sought specifically from members of the early career researcher community based at EUTOPIA Alliance member institutions*.

Exchanges’ Editorial Board (editors) members are responsible for conducting initial editorial quality assessments along with managing any subsequent peer-review and copyediting processes for manuscripts submitted; as assigned by the Editor-in-Chief (EIC). Editors play a crucial role in identifying and soliciting peer-reviewers, alongside handling communications with authors, reviewers and fellow editors during the editorial process. Furthermore, editors perform a vital promotional role by acting as ‘brand ambassadors’ for the title. They promote the journal within their own institutions and professional networks, while raising its visibility to a wider readership. Critically, they should expect to actively encourage new manuscript submissions from suitable authors.

Terms of Service

Editors normally serve a minimum of 18 months to 2 years on the journal, but many often continue in these roles for a longer period. Personally, there are expectations editors will always be responsive to information requests from the EIC, reliable and diligent in their working practices, while also possessing a high degrees of personal responsibility for delivering on the requirements of their role in a timely manner. Moreover, editors should expect to exercise the highest professional standards of ethical publishing practice in all matters relating to Exchanges. However, editors who in the EIC’s judgement routinely fail to deliver on required expectations may be dismissed from the Board.

Benefits

In return, through working closely with the EIC within a supportive, collegiate and responsive environment, editors can expect to gain invaluable experience and editorial skills. Key academic skills developed are likely to include: publication processes, critical reading, editorial oversight, ethical awareness, team-working, effective negotiation and communicative practices. Alongside this, editors will also gain an enhanced professional profile and personal visibility through their work.
