Applications are invited for the next Editor-in-Chief of Canadian Studies in Population (CSiP).
The Canadian Population Society (CPS), in collaboration with Springer Nature, is inviting applications for the Editor-in-Chief for its flagship journal Canadian Studies in Population, published in four issues per year (impact factor 0.773, http://www.springer.com/42650).
Founded in 1974, Canadian Studies in Population is the official journal of the CPS and an established international forum for research on population processes in Canada and around the world. Emphasis is placed on cutting-edge research relevant to demography and other population-related fields (including economics, geography, sociology, health sciences, public policy, and environmental sciences). The journal publishes original research articles and brief research notes that make an empirical, theoretical or methodological contribution.
Journal editors provide leadership by publishing work that is consistent with the mission of the journal. As ambassadors for the journal, they are engaged in the scientific community and adept at building new bridges to enhance the significance and breadth of work published in the journal. They will have strong organizational skills, be an excellent communicator, and have prior experience on the editorial boards of academic journals.
The editor of CSiP will be responsible for securing timely reviews by qualified reviewers; making final decisions on manuscripts; recruiting and mentoring talented Associate Editors and Editorial Board Members; maintaining the high standards of the journal; and promoting the journal by encouraging the submission of manuscripts. The time needed to meet these responsibilities varies from week to week, but generally requires one full day per week.
Applicants need not be current members of the CPS, but will be asked to join the association upon the start of their term. The editor will be required to maintain membership in the Canadian Population Society and to submit annual reports on their activities to CPS Council.
The official term for the new editor will commence in January 2023 (the editorial transition will start in summer 2022) and is for a period of five years (until December 2027).
CPS provides funding not to exceed $2,500 per year for translation services, supplies and reasonable expenses related to editorial duties. The CPS does not pay for office space, teaching release, or tuition. Editors are encouraged to seek institutional support.
Applicants should submit their CV, a letter of interest, and a vision statement by March 15, 2022 to the chair of the search committee (Anna Zajacova at CSIP.EIC.SEARCH@gmail.com). Applicants with diverse backgrounds are welcomed.
