The Publications Committee of the International Studies Association along with the Association's Executive Committee will make a recommendation to the organization's Governing Council regarding the assignment of editorial duties for International Studies Review at the 2017 Annual Meeting in Baltimore. (A mission statement for the journal can be accessed at http://www.isanet.org/Publications/ISR).

The individual or team then selected to serve as editor(s) of ISR will hold that position for a five-year term January 1, 2018 – December 31, 2022. (There will also be some transitional duties during late 2017.)

The lead editor(s) should hold secure positions at an academic institution, and receive a measure of support from their home institution for their editorial tasks. The lead person/team can also expect an annual subvention from the Association of approx. $32k for expenses relating to running the journal. Guidelines for preparing a proposal, framing a budget, frequently asked questions, etc. can be found on the ISA website http://www.isanet.org/ISA/Governance/Committees/Publications/Guidelines

The Publications Committee will review all proposals meeting essential criteria as soon as possible. Proposals received no later than September 15, 2016 are assured most thorough consideration. The Committee is willing to accept proposals after that date, if -- prior to September 15 -- you notify the Committee Chair of your intention to submit a proposal. Be aware that the Publications Committee must forward its recommendations to the ISA Executive Committee by November 30, 2016.

Questions about the process of selecting the editor(s), or the editorial duties involved, may be addressed to the Chair of the Publications Committee, Brian M. Pollins, at pollins.1@osu.edu, or (614) 309-1867. Applications from individuals or editorial teams will be considered. Applications should be submitted to Brian M. Pollins, ISA Publications Committee Chair, in electronic form only, please. Again, applications should be received no later than September 15, 2016, although applications will be accepted until an appointment is recommended by the committee. Women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged to apply. ISA is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
