OPPORTUNITY: Managing Editor for Reviews in Digital Humanities

Reviews in Digital Humanities is looking for a Managing Editor, and offering a $5,000 honorarium for each year of commitment (with the possibility of renewal). Applicants will be considered starting October 15th, and would begin November 1, 2022 to October 31, 2023. From the description of the role:

The role of the Managing Editor includes:

  • Managing the intake of overviews and reviews for the journal;

  • Soliciting project overviews and reviews in consultation with the journal editors;

  • Maintaining the journal’s email account, directing queries to journal editors as appropriate, and communicating with project directors and reviewers;

  • Keeping the journal’s submission spreadsheet updated, reflecting the status of each project based on communication with project directors and reviewers;

  • Meeting every other week with the journal editors to provide an update on the submission and review pipeline.

We anticipate that this is a commitment of 3-5 hours/week, as the workload of the journal ebbs and flows with the rhythms of the academic year and summer. Managing editor tasks can be done on a flexible timeline, but we need a collaborator who can commit to dividing their work over two days each week to ensure that the submission and review pipeline keeps moving. This is a remote role.

Required Qualifications: strong organizational skills, strong written communication skills in English

The Managing Editor role is suited for people with working knowledge of digital humanities, regardless of the role or job title they hold (e.g., graduate students, faculty, librarians, archivists, cultural heritage workers, technologists).

Candidates from outside the U.S. are welcome and encouraged.

Interested candidates should send a resume or CV with a brief description (3-5 sentences) of why they are interested to Roopika.Risam@dartmouth.edu and guiliano@iupui.edu with reviewsindigitalhumanities@gmail.com cc’d by October 15, 2022.
