About the Co-Editor Role
Co-Editors of Spatial Economic Analysis are expected to:
- Support the peer review process by selecting referees on appropriate manuscripts (assigned to them by the Editor in Chief) and making recommendations to the Editor in Chief based on referee reports. The peer review process is double blind on all submitted manuscripts.
- Use ScholarOne Manuscripts, the online submissions tracking system, to assist in the editorial process.
- Comment on and contribute to the editorials, which are written by the Editor in Chief for publication in each general issue (not for special issues).
- Continue the development of the journal and in particular to encourage submissions and special issues from leading writers in the field.
Under the current arrangements, the RSA covers the cost of the employment of an Editorial Assistant. The publisher handles production. It also markets the journal to the RSA membership, the RSAI BIS membership and to the journal subscriber base.
Responding to the Call for Expressions of Interest
In making expressions of interest candidates are invited to submit:
- A brief editorial manifesto outlining their intentions for the safeguarding and further development of the academic excellence, relevance and scope of Spatial Economic Analysis;
- An indication of host institution support; and
- A full CV – these may be in summary form but should give enough information to demonstrate the main relevant expertise possessed by the candidate and their embeddedness in the field, e.g., information about networks, conferences attended, relevant publications, professional memberships, etc.
The selection of the new Co-Editor(s) will be jointly made by the RSA and RSAI BIS in the light of recommendations from the RSA’s Journals Committee on which RSAI BIS representatives sit for decisions on Spatial Economic Analysis.
The post is for commencement as soon as possible after the decision has been made. The appointed Co-Editor(s) will be expected to complete a term of between 3-5 years.
