Managing Editor for the journal, WORD
The executive board of the International Linguistic Association is seeking a managing editor for the association’s journal, WORD. Editorial terms are for three years, renewable.
WORD publishes peer-reviewed research and theoretical articles from all disciplines in linguistics. Also, through its robust book review sections, WORD makes available critical analyses of a wide range of published materials. Occasionally, special issues on specific topics are produced. WORD subscriptions are available to both individuals and institutions.
Qualifications and Responsibilities:
The managing editor should be an established linguist with experience in editorial work, strong organizational skills, and an imaginative conception of the journal's future. Some institutional support is essential.
The managing editor has final responsibility for all material that appears in the publication. The editor works with an editorial board, presently consisting of two associate editors and a book review editor; receives, reviews and approves manuscripts; and supervises the copy editing process. The editor participates as necessary in meetings of the executive board. The association is in conversation with publishers who could facilitate the process with online platforms for communication, editing and publishing work.
The Journal’s Mission:
WORD is the publication of the International Linguistic Association (ILA). Founded in 1943 as the Linguistic Circle of New York, the association became one of the main sources of new ideas in American Linguistics at that time. Its journal WORD was founded in 1945 with a mission to disseminate the scholarly discussion of the day and to become the journal of record for general linguistics. During several decades of intellectual ferment in linguistics, the scholarship published by WORD continued to record the expansion of linguistic ideas—both theoretical and applied. Today, WORD continues its broadly-based mission to reflect and record contemporary linguistic scholarship.
A letter of interest and a CV should be sent to Professor Jo Anne Kleifgen at the application email address below. Review of applications will begin immediately.
