The Code4Lib Journal, which publishes two issues a year aiming to “foster community and share information among those interested in the intersection of libraries, technology, and the future,” is looking for editorial committee members to commit around 10 hours per month toward collaborative submission reading and editing. Other duties include formatting text, images, figures, etc. with WordPress, completing administrative tasks, and more. From the Call:
We seek an individual who is self-motivated, organized and able to meet deadlines; is familiar with ideas and trends in the field; and has an interest in the mechanics of writing. There is a sometimes significant time commitment involved; expect to set aside ten or more hours a month.
It sounds like a lot of work, but it’s also a lot of fun (if editing is your idea of fun).
Intrigued? Please send a letter of interest by Friday, February 24 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your letter should address these three questions:
- What is your vision for the Code4Lib Journal? Why are you interested in it?
- How can you contribute to the Code4Lib Journal, i.e. what do you have to offer?
- How do you make our editorial committee more diverse?
The Code4Lib Journal strives to represent a variety of perspectives in library technology and we encourage candidates from underrepresented groups to apply. We also encourage people who have previously applied and who are still interested to re-apply. We have had to turn down a lot of highly-qualified people in the past due to the large number of applications.
If you have any questions, contact us by email at email@example.com or ask any member of the editorial committee (listed at https://journal.code4lib.org/editorial-committee). We plan to make decisions about additional editors by mid March 2023.
