FYI. JESP open call for editorial board members


The Journal of Experimental Social Psychology is issuing an open call to fill 5-10 slots on its Editorial Board. An Editorial Board at JESP is expected to review up to 10 manuscripts a year at the request of various Associate Editors. The position will begin in February 2021 and run for three years, with possibility to continue.

In particular, we are looking to increase the diversity of our Board in demographic and other ways, by looking outside the usual cycle of inviting accomplished reviewers known to our Editors. Beyond this, we are looking for people who are expert in the issues facing research published in JESP, and in the specific of one or more topic areas of research that are represented in JESP’s publication record.

We encourage nominations by others, but we expect nominated persons to agree in principle to the appointment and provide materials. To apply, please send to JESP@Elsevier.com by 15 December 2020 the following documents:

  • A short CV including: a) academic history, b) up to 10 references to your publications demonstrating the quality and breadth of your research experience, c) any previous experience in academic reviewing and/or editing, d) the names, institutions and contact details of up to three people who would be willing to discuss your performance as a reviewer or editor if asked (e.g., book editors, associate or chief editors of journals).
  • A cover letter explaining why you are well suited and qualified for this position, including the kind of manuscript topics you would be best suited to review.

A decision is expected by early January.
