Call for Editorial Board Members
Submission Deadline: January 31, 2016 

Student Anthropologist, the Journal of the National Association of Student Anthropologists, is currently accepting new Editorial Board Members. The board is composed of student anthropologists who support the peer-review process and publication of the annual issue of Student Anthropologist while also contributing through their own specialized function or role.

Editorial Board Members typically work with authors one-on-one throughout the editorial process, peer review manuscripts (as needed), provide general support to the Board (as needed), copy edit manuscripts (as needed), and aid in the solicitation of manuscripts via their peer networks.

Additionally, we are looking to fill some specialized roles.

  • Design Editor: an individual with interest or expertise in Adobe InDesign or Pages for Mac; effectively, this person will design and manage the look of the journal
  • Communications Editor: an individual who can manage the social media (e.g. Facebook, Twitter) of Student Anthropologist; someone who can regularly promote Calls for Papers, published issues, and related announcements.
  • Peer Review Editor: an individual who can manage manuscripts and the peer review database; matching submissions with appropriate peer reviewers in a double-blind process; adding new peer reviewers to the database
  • Book Review Editor: an individual who solicits reviews and books, works with a book reviewer through the editorial process, and copy edits manuscripts; see Call for Book Review Editor for more details

Editorial Board Members should be graduate-level students, though undergraduates are welcome to apply for Design and Communications positions. We encourage students from all field of anthropology to apply. Those who are interested should contact with the following information:

  1. Full name
  2. University Affiliation
  3. A current CV
  4. If interested in a specialized role: which role and a brief description of your qualifications

The deadline for applications is January 31, 2016.
