We are pleased to announce an opportunity to join the Reviews in Digital Humanities team as Managing Editor.
Managing Editor Description
Reviews in Digital Humanities, a journal that offers peer review of digital scholarship, is seeking a Managing Editor to assist with management of the submission and review pipeline.
The commitment will ideally begin November 1, 2022 and end October 31, 2023, with the possibility for renewal. The Managing Editor will receive an honorarium of $5,000 for the year.
The role of the Managing Editor includes:
Managing the intake of overviews and reviews for the journal;
Soliciting project overviews and reviews in consultation with the journal editors;
Maintaining the journal’s email account, directing queries to journal editors as appropriate, and communicating with project directors and reviewers;
Keeping the journal’s submission spreadsheet updated, reflecting the status of each project based on communication with project directors and reviewers;
Meeting every other week with the journal editors to provide an update on the submission and review pipeline.
We anticipate that this is a commitment of 3-5 hours/week, as the workload of the journal ebbs and flows with the rhythms of the academic year and summer. Managing editor tasks can be done on a flexible timeline, but we need a collaborator who can commit to dividing their work over two days each week to ensure that the submission and review pipeline keeps moving. This is a remote role.
Required Qualifications: strong organizational skills, strong written communication skills in English
The Managing Editor role is suited for people with working knowledge of digital humanities, regardless of the role or job title they hold (e.g., graduate students, faculty, librarians, archivists, cultural heritage workers, technologists).
Interested candidates should send a resume or CV with a brief description (3-5 sentences) of why they are interested to Roopika.Risam@dartmouth.edu and firstname.lastname@example.org with email@example.com cc’d by October 15, 2022.
