The ECPR will launch its new open access journal, Political Research Exchange (PRX) in January 2019 and is seeking a team of Associate Editors to work alongside the founding Editors in Chief, Alexandra Segerberg (University of Stockholm) and Simona Guerra (University of Leicester).
PRX will be published in partnership with Taylor & Francis and will aim to cover the full spectrum of political science and international relations, harnessing latest technology to provide fast publication, flexibility in article length and format coupled with the reach and access to all OA brings. PRX will be fully integrated into the structure of the ECPR through its Standing Groups and will be a key new membership benefit, providing significantly reduced article processing charges (APCs) for authors.
The Associate Editors, drawn from the ECPR’s Standing Groups, will provide a broad scope of subject expertise and will work with the Editors in Chief to shape the content and direction of the journal. A full job specification and application requirements can be found on the ECPR’s website, along with the aims and scope of the journal.
Interested candidates should submit an application to ECPR Communications Manager, Rebecca Gethen (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the closing date of 5 March. Any queries about the role can also be directed to Rebecca in the first instance. After the closing date, the Editors in Chief, along with the ECPR’s Publications Subcommittee, will select a group of around 20 Associate Editors to take into the breadth of subject areas and methodologies reflected by the range of Standing Groups; Associate Editors will therefore work beyond their Standing Groups.
