SEEKING A GUEST BOOK REVIEW EDITOR FOR PI GAMMA MU'S FLAGSHIP PUBLICATION

Pi Gamma Mu's flagship academic publication, the International Social Science Review (https://issr.ung.edu), is searching for a guest book review editor for the 2017 summer/fall issue. The guest book review editor will be responsible for providing the editor-in-chief with 12-15 book reviews for the issue. This process includes identifying books and obtaining them from publishers, assigning books to reviewers, and editing their work. While the guest editor will be provided with the ISSR's list of reviewers and publishers, the guest editor is encouraged to seek out new contacts in terms of both publishers and reviewers. The guest book review editor will also be provided with support from the main editor, and must follow the ISSR's standards for book reviews. Beyond that, the book reviewer will work independently.

Qualifications: The guest book review editor should have a PhD in a social science, but advanced ABDs will be considered. The best candidate will work independently, and meet and set deadlines that ensure he or she will deliver the book reviews to the main editor on time. Strong writing and editing skills are a must.

Please send a cover letter and curriculum vitae to Editor-in-chief of the journal, Dr. Candice Quinn at [email protected] to apply. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until January 19th, 2017. On January 2nd, this position (which is a strong addition to an academic's resume), will be cross-posted. The guest book review editor does not need to be a Pi Gamma Mu member (although it would be wonderful if they were a member and hence already familiar with the society's high standards), so please feel free to share this opportunity with colleagues and advanced graduate students.
