Society & Natural Resources is seeking applications for Editorial Board Members. We aim to broaden the community of practice around the journal, support editorial operations, and secure the quality of peer reviews. Editorial Board Members are closely engaged in the review process of our increased submissions and review up to 10 manuscripts annually to provide timely and comprehensive reviews. The contribution of Editorial Board Members plays a crucial role in editorial decisions, especially when other reviews are divergent or when additional specialized input is required.

The current call will result in appointments of Editorial Board Members for a three-year term (January 2019- January 2022; contingent on performance). We invite colleagues who have completed their PhD and who have already published in citation peer-reviewed journals in the broad field of environmental social science to send an application (single pdf file) to the Assistant Editor, Jessica Hill ([email protected]g), or directly to Editors-in-Chief of Society & Natural Resources, including: (1) a paragraph with their research expertise; (2) a list of publications; (3) a paragraph with current and past professional positions, and (4) any prior editorial experience. The deadline for submitting an application is October 31, 2018.

We are looking forward to receiving your applications and expanding the community of practice around Society & Natural Resources.

Tasos Hovardas ([email protected]) & Linda S. Prokopy ([email protected]), Editors-in-Chief of Society & Natural Resources
