Call for Editor(s) for the EJPS 2021-2024
The new editor(s) will take on responsibilities in the course of 2021.
Call for expressions of interest in editing the European Journal for Philosophy of Science.
The present Editors-in-Chief of the EPSA's journal The European Journal for Philosophy of Science are completing their term of service. The EPSA is therefore seeking expressions of interest for this position. The editorship will be assumed on 1 July 2021 and is normally held for a renewable term of four years. The deadline for expressions of interest is 6th of January 2021.
The European Journal for Philosophy of Science was founded in 2009 and the first issue was published in 2011. The journal currently publishes three issues per year. The Editors-in-Chief are responsible for selecting manuscripts for publication, supervising the editorial office, and coordinating the production of the journal with the publisher Springer. In accordance with the EPSA's by-laws and customs, the Editors-in-Chief must hold a permanent academic appointment and have a distinguished research record in philosophy of science.
Currently the journal has two Editors-in-Chief and seven Associate Editors, but other arrangements are also possible. If two Editors-in-Chief are proposed, ideally they should have expertise in different sub-specialisms within the philosophy of science. Note that some of the current Associate editors may wish to continue in post beyond July 2021.
Applications for the position of Editors-in-Chief should summarize the applicants’ qualifications for the editorship, present the proposed editorial team, and describe the likely institutional support, such as teaching relief, office space, and administrative assistance. Applications from outside Europe are welcome, but at least half of the editorial team (i.e. Editor(s)-in-Chief and Associate Editors) should have a position in Europe.
The application should include the CVs of all members of the proposed editorial team.
Please submit applications by e-mail attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is 6 January 2021. Questions concerning the position should be directed to the President of EPSA, Professor Samir Okasha, at email@example.com.
