Subject: Seeking Editorial Board Nominations for Palgrave Communications
Dear POLCAN2 members,
Palgrave Communications (http://www.palgrave-journals.com/palcomms/) is a fully open-access academic journal, published by Palgrave Macmillan, covering all fields of research within the social sciences and the humanities. The journal also welcomes interdisciplinary research. Peer review of submitted manuscripts is overseen by members of the international Editorial Board (http://www.palgrave-journals.com/palcomms/).
We are now inviting interested academics to apply for inclusion on our board, or to nominate suitable colleagues.
Editorial Board members’ key responsibilities include:
· Acting as advocates for the journal throughout the community
· Upon invitation, acting as peer reviewers for submitted papers within their area of expertise
· Providing editorial advice on an ad hoc basis
Editorial Board candidates should be established academics with a good publication record demonstrating their expertise in their research field. Experience of serving on an editorial board is desirable but not essential. Naturally, board candidates should be able to maintain the high ethical standards expected of academics overseeing aspects of peer review.
All applications and nominations should be directed to: Palcomms@palgrave.com
Applications should comprise a CV/resume, publications list, and cover letter briefly outlining why you are a suitable candidate and how you can contribute to the journal’s development.
