The Media, Communication and Cultural Studies Association (MeCCSA) Postgraduate Network Committee wishes to recruit a new member to join us in the role of Associate Editor of our postgraduate journal Networking Knowledge.
Networking Knowledge provides a platform for postgraduate and early career researchers to publish work and to gain experience in the peer review process. The journal features specially themed issues proposed by guest editors, as well as inviting individual articles on any of MeCCSA’s subject areas for our standard issues.
About the Role
Reporting to the Editor-in-Chief, the journal’s Associate Editors help to oversee the peer review process, communicate with reviewers and authors, and actively participate in the copyediting, production, and planning of regular, conference and special issues of the journal. If you are a postgraduate research student at a UK university, are comfortable working independently while remaining accountable to the Editor-in-Chief, the Committee and the aims and purpose of the journal, have excellent communication skills and a good eye for detail, this is the role for you! We are particularly keen to hear from candidates who have some experience in graphic and web design, who would be prepared, upon taking up the role, to focus on redesigning our journal logo and technical tasks including ensuring the accessibility and proper formatting of documents. As with all positions within the MeCCSA PGN Committee, this position is a voluntary one, with a tenure of one year in the first instance.
