Recruitment Central

This page provides additional information about how to become an editor or advisory board member at an H-Net network and catalogs the recruitment programs and calls of H-Net’s nearly 200 topically-defined networks.

The editorial teams of these networks are the authorities over the application process, so please make sure to read their recruitment messages carefully. When a network’s current editorial team decides to bring on a new member, that member must go through a nomination, application, and certification process governed by H-Net’s Bylaws and Executive Council Policies. A network’s current editors and board members must nominate the individual and the candidate must fill out an application (see the blue buttons immediately below). All nominations are subject to review by H-Net’s Executive Council. If Council approves a nomination, the individual must then complete a brief, free online training program. Once trained, the new editor will join the network’s editorial team. H-Net recommends a two-year term for appointments and requires a six-week probationary period. Many editors and board members elect to serve for longer periods.
