Mind journal seeks to appoint new Editors

By | Uncategorised | No Comments

The Mind Association invites expressions of interest in the role of Editors for the quarterly journal, MIND, with handover planned for the summer of 2025.

Our preference is for two Editors working in equal partnership, though we will consider other proposals. Editors working in partnership do not need to be based in the same institution. At this initial stage we just need the names and institutions of proposed Editors.

Initial expressions of interest should be made by email to the Director, Professor Jonathan Webber, at by 30th June. If the proposal is for a partnership, it should be sent by one of the proposed Editors and cc in the other one(s).

Thereafter, applicants will be invited to submit a proposal. This will need to include the names of any co-editors, associate editors, or reviews editor, along with a description of institutional arrangements and a budget outline. We will send applicants further information about current editorial and operational arrangements at this stage.

Two proposals will be taken forward to the final stage, which will involve providing a more detailed explanation of the proposed editorial team, process, and expenditure.

The Association will consider all terms proposed by applicants. We expect to provide funds suitable to cover support for the Editors (for example, teaching buyout) and the editorial team.

Potential applicants may wish to note that the journal operates through ScholarOne online submissions and is published by Oxford University Press.

The successful applicants will be offered a training period with the current Editors.
