CJNS/RCÉN is produced with in-kind support from the University of Lethbridge Journal Incubator (http://www.uleth.ca/lib/incubator/) in the Lethbridge Centre for the Study of Scholarly Communications (CSSC; http://www.uleth.ca/research/centre-study-scholarly-communications).
The Canadian Journal of Netherlandic Studies / Revue canadienne d’études néerlandaises (CJNS/RCEN) is looking for a new Editor-in-Chief. Past Editors have been Adrian van den Hoven and Basil Kingstone (both University of Windsor), and the current Editor is Inge Genee (University of Lethbridge). CJNS/RCEN began publication in 1979.
CJNS/RCEN is owned and published by the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Netherlandic Studies / Association canadienne pour l’avancement des études néerlandaises (CAANS/ACAEN). The new Editor-in-Chief will be responsible for all daily operations and for the publication process from the receipt of submissions to the final page proof and publication stage. The Editor will review and where needed revise the existing editorial policies and develop new strategies to ensure the sustainability of the journal. The Editor will work together with the CJNS/RCEN editorial board and the CAANS/ACAEN executive board, and be assisted by the webmaster. Where needed the current Editor will provide training and a period of assistance until the handover is complete.
This is a great opportunity for a beginning scholar to gain experience with the publishing process and deepen their familiarity with the field of Netherlandic studies, or for a more established scholar to contribute their expertise to the field and help ensure the sustainability of our journal.
The incumbent is expected to take over in May 2019.
CJNS/RCEN is currently published on-line only in immediate open access format.
QualificationsThe Editor-in-Chief will be a scholar with demonstrated affinity with the field of Netherlandic Studies. Familiarity with the editorial process and/or the academic publication industry is an asset. Knowledge of French and/or Dutch is an asset.
Conditions of the position
This is an unpaid scholarly position. The Editor-in-Chief is in charge of editorial policy and processes in collaboration with the CJNS/RCEN editorial board and the CAANS/ACAEN executive board. The Editor-in-Chief is an ex officio member of the executive, and is normally expected to attend the Annual General Meeting, which takes place in conjunction with the CAANS/ACAEN conference at the Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities.
Inquiries and application
Please contact the President of CAANS/ACAEN, Dr. Tanja Collet at email@example.com. The deadline for applications is November 15, 2018.
