Join our team!

We are always looking for new colleagues interested in joining our team. Before expressing your interest by contacting us, please take a look on the two roles you could take on: 

Network Editors manage, edit, and support H-Net networks. They are stewards of H-Net's most valuable assets and responsible for developing content on their networks. They are entrusted with procuring relevant, timely contributions that inform the field and have the potential to impact the scholarly conversation within their fields. They moderate discussions, edit posts, solicit and commission contributions, develop new features, manage subscriptions, work with H-Net to develop and implement editing policies and practices, and directly post messages to their networks. Networks preferably have teams of network editors to share the duties. Their workload can vary with the practices and division of labor for individual networks and can include moderating incoming posts from subscribers, creating and/or contributing to specialized projects and features, organizing the network's homepage, and developing local editorial policies. Network editors must have strong field qualifications for the subject covered by the network; have reliable internet access; and pass training in H-Net's content management system. H-Net provides basic training and limited support. For a description of our general posting and subscription management guidelines, click here.

Review Editors commission and edit reviews of scholarship in print or other media for specific networks. Review Editors must have strong field qualifications in the subject covered by the networks; collaborate with reviewers and other editors and H-Net staff by email in a timely fashion; and use H-Net's online Reviews Management System to assign, edit, and publish reviews. H-Net provides training on H-Net's Standards and Guidelines for Reviewing and in the use of the Reviews Management System. Because H-Net Reviews editing offices and staff are located in the United States, Review Editors must be able to communicate and edit in English. See H-Net's Review Guidelines and Standards for more about H-Net Reviews.
