EF Journal Editorial Assistant Position Announcement

The British Forum for Ethnomusicology seeks to hire an Editorial Assistant for its journal Ethnomusicology Forum. The Editorial Assistant is a crucial member of the EF editorial team who works alongside the journal Co-Editors and the Taylor & Francis production team.

The primarily responsibilities of the Editorial Assistant involve facilitating the peer review process using the Taylor & Francis manuscript submission system and ensuring final manuscripts are checked for house style. The Editorial Assistant also communicates with manuscript authors, maintains a schedule of deadlines, copyedits final submissions, and assists with other editorial responsibilities as needed. The typical workload is the equivalent of three to four hours of work per week throughout the year, although this can fluctuate. There is some degree of flexibility about the timing of work, but the Editorial Assistant must help the Co-Editors meet copy and production deadlines.

The Editorial Assistant will be appointed for an initial two-year term with the possibility of extension. The fee for this work will be £2,500 per year.

We therefore seek Editorial Assistant applications from individuals active in the discipline of ethnomusicology who have some editorial experience and a commitment to the development of ethnomusicology in the United Kingdom. To apply for the post, please prepare a two-page CV and a cover letter detailing suitability for the post. Send both to Alexander Cannon by 1st March 2022.

For more information about the role of Editorial Assistant, please contact Alexander Cannon (A.M.Cannonatbham.ac.uk) or the current Editorial Assistant, Emma Brinkhurst (emma.brinkhurstatbfe.org.uk).
