Deafness & Education International Call for Co-Editors

Deafness & Education International

Call for Co-Editors
Routledge, in collaboration with the editorial board of Deafness and Education International, and the Journal’s affiliated societies, BATOD and NAATD, is seeking to appoint a partnership of Co-Editors, to commence Editorship of the Journal from Volume 19, 2018.

The ideal candidates for the partnership would, between them, be members of BATOD and NAATD. While the Co-Editors would therefore naturally represent academic research from the UK and Australia, they would also need to demonstrate sensitivity to the international scope and outlook of the Journal.

The Co-Editors also need to represent a balanced stance on deaf education and the different communication approaches therein, not favouring either sign language or spoken language.
Applicants should be experienced academics already published in the field and attending academic conferences, where networking and publicity for the Journal is an important task. Previous editorial board experience is highly desirable.

About the role
The incoming Co-Editors’ main tasks will include: overseeing the refereeing process; writing/co-writing Editorials; securing copy for the Journal; promoting the work of the Journal to the academic community; representing the Journal at relevant events and conferences, and development and implementation of editorial strategy, to shape the future direction of the Journal and its contribution to the academic field.

The successful candidates will be expected to take an active role in the continuing development of the Journal. The Co-Editors will work closely with the editorial, marketing and production staff at Routledge, the publishers of the Journal.

The initial term for the Co-Editors will be five years, with the option to renew for a further period by mutual consent.

About the Journal
Deafness & Education International is a peer-reviewed journal published quarterly, which provides a forum for teachers and other professionals involved with the education and development of deaf infants, children and young people, and readily welcomes relevant contributions from this area of expertise. Submissions may fall within the areas of linguistics, education, personal-social and cognitive developments of deaf children, spoken language, sign language, deaf culture and traditions, audiological issues, cochlear implants, educational technology and educational issues that impinge on deaf children and young people.

Application Process

Applicants are invited to apply for the above position by emailing a written application, which should include a CV and a letter outlining your suitability for the role, and your vision for the Journal under your Co-Editorship, to the Journal’s Managing Editor at Routledge: catherine.phipps@tandf.co.uk.

The closing date for applications is May 31st 2017. Further information is available from Catherine Phipps at the above email address, or from the Journal website.
