The journal East European Politics and Societies and Cultures (EEPS; is seeking a new Editor (or Editors). EEPS is an international, interdisciplinary journal for the examination of critical issues related to Eastern Europe. It serves as a forum for current work in East Europe studies, including comparative analyses and theoretical issues with implications for other world areas. Its geographical scope is the area that lies between Germany to the west and Russia to the east and includes the Baltic region and the Balkans. Its current editorial board ( is composed of distinguished historians, cultural historians, literary scholars, political scientists, anthropologists, and social scientists. EEPS was established in 1986. Since 2003, it is published quarterly, in February, May, August, and November, by SAGE. Recently, it has been receiving about 200 submissions per year, with an acceptance rate of around 30%.

The Editors receive a modest allowance to offset personal expenses related to editorial activities and for journal development (currently the annual allowance is $5000 per editor). The journal pays a modest salary to a Managing Editor, who oversees the flow of manuscripts from submission to publication and performs other editorial tasks.
