The Citizen Science Association is currently hiring both a Managing Editor and an Editor-in-Chief for the open access, peer-reviewed journal, Citizen Science: Theory & Practice.
Citizen Science: Theory & Practice (CS:TP) is an online-only, open-access and peer-reviewed journal established in 2014 by the CSA in partnership with Ubiquity Press Ltd. The journal seeks to advance the field of citizen science by providing a central space for scholarly communications across multiple disciplines and contexts. Our target audience is a mix of scholars, practitioners, and those with an interest in expanding their efforts into public involvement including: project coordinators, scientists, education researchers, evaluators, participants, funders, and others in a wide range of fields including ecology, astronomy, public health and many more.
At the moment, the journal publishes an average of two issues annually, each containing an average of nine papers, while receiving an average of 60 manuscripts each year. These papers are processed by the Journal’s international Editorial Board, which currently consists of 18 individuals with expertise in peer-review publication.
Each of these positions offers an opportunity to make a major impact on a young journal in a dynamic and rapidly growing field.
We seek highly motivated and highly skilled candidates with strong experience in the editorial and publishing process and the ability to work effectively and efficiently as part of a distributed global team (please see each job description for specific qualifications). Applicants can be based anywhere in the world. As this publication is in English, fluency writing and reviewing in English is required.
Applications for Managing Editor will be accepted until filled (aim to fill by mid/end of October if not before). Direct inquiries regarding this position to Jennifer Shirk, firstname.lastname@example.org
Applications for Editor-in-Chief position will be accepted through 17 October 2019. Please direct inquiries regarding this position to Michael Pocock, Michael.email@example.com
Please share both opportunities widely with all who may have relevant skills – experience with citizen science is desirable but strong editorial background and experience is most important.
