The International Association for Society and Natural Resources (IASNR) is seeking candidates for two positions on the Editorial Board of the Society & Natural Resources Press. The Editorial Board Members will assume responsibility in January 2022 for a four year term.
The main tasks of Editorial Board Members involve soliciting, screening and reviewing book proposals, making recommendations regarding the suitability of the completed manuscripts for publication based on external reviews, taking part in regular (bi-monthly) Editorial Board meetings and building bridges with higher education institutes, research teams and professional groups worldwide to serve as an advocate for the publishing program.
