The journal Anthropology of the Contemporary Middle East and Central Eurasia (ACME) is looking to recruit a new Book Review Editor, with the first contributed work to appear in Volume 5(1), Summer 2016.
The Book Review Editor will work with the chief editor and publisher, and be responsible for liaising with publishers marketing departments (securing books for review, sending published reviews to the press), commissioning suitable reviewers and supplying them with books, and editing and readying the final work for publication. The book review section will be forwarded to the publishing house for copyediting and layout, and then reviewed by the Books Review Editor prior to final publication. We anticipate between 6 and 12 books being reviewed for each instalment of the section, to be published twice a year.
A wonderful opportunity for the right candidate, this is an unpaid, volunteer position requiring a commitment of at least two years. The Book Review Editor will be expected to participate in editorial decisions for the journal, secure topically relevant review copies, recruit and coordinate a pool of reviewers, and assemble a high-quality, informative book review section.
