Geographical Research — Call for Expressions of Interest: Associate Editor (1)

About the journal

Geographical Research is the internationally-refereed publication of the Institute of Australian Geographers, the peak body representing academic and professional geographers in Australia. The primary objective of Geographical Research is to advance innovative, high-quality work that demonstrates the strengths and diversity of all parts of the discipline of Geography and allied fields and, in this endeavour, it also supports scholarship from the Institute’s several Study Groups. The Journal includes (but is not restricted to) academic papers, commentaries, book panels, and book reviews. It is published in February, May, August, and November each year by John Wiley & Sons Australia, Ltd. The Journal is managed by Editors appointed by the Council of the Institute. The Editor-in-Chief, Professor Elaine Stratford (University of Tasmania) works closely with Associate and Book Review Editors, respectively Professor Steve Turton (Central Queensland University), Dr Danielle Drozdzewski (Stockholm University), and Dr Kirstie Petrou (University of Tasmania, based in Adelaide).

Expression of Interest – Associate Editor

We are now seeking expressions of interest for another associate editor for the Journal. The Associate Editor will have a specialisation and the capacity to assess papers from other parts of geography and allied fields. For example, the team has recently worked on submissions related to ecology, food security, education, development studies, geomorphology, economic geography, and GIS. Thus, our new Associate Editor will be:

  *   highly committed to geography and have a deep curiosity about allied fields;
  *   passionate about reading, writing, publishing, and promoting the discipline widely;
  *   able to work with a small team over distance;
  *   able to devote four to eight hours a week to editorial duties including, but not limited to:

o   selecting reviewers;

o   liaising with reviewers and authors;

o   soliciting papers of all kinds produced by the journal; and

o   helping to assess special/themed/virtual issue proposals; and

  *   able to travel to one annual meeting, typically in late January or early February, and join other members of the team and Editorial Board at geography conferences whenever possible.

We welcome expressions of interest to become either an Associate Editor or member of the Editorial Board (you are welcome to apply for both). Write no more than one page that outlines your response to the points above. Add a current CV of no more than three pages that highlights relevant experience. Include a final page that lists the names and full contact details of two referees who have been made aware that they have been nominated. Please combine these documents into one PDF and send this jointly to Professor Elaine Stratford Elaine.Stratford at utas.edu.au<mailto:Elaine.Stratford at utas.edu.au> by close of business on Friday 1 February 2019.
