Literacy Journal Seeks Book Reviews Editor

Interested candidates should apply by the 31st of March 2020


Literacy is looking for a book reviews editor, or two co-editors, who will be responsible for managing the solicitation, acceptance, and review process for books that have been recently published. They will identify potential reviewers, identify books that warrant being reviewed for Literacy, and solicit review copies from the publishers if needed.

Book review editor(s) will provide feedback to the author of the book review and convey the editorial decision (accept for publication, revise and resubmit, or reject), made in consultation with the Editors, and provide guidance to the authors for revisions, if appropriate. They will work inside the ScholarOne submission system.

The book reviews editor will be a member of the United Kingdom Literacy Association, familiar with the field of literacy from an academic and practitioner perspective and able to recruit reviewers. Experience with a peer-reviewed journal as a reviewer or editor will be beneficial.

Interested candidates should apply by the 31st of March 2020 by sending a short (max 1 page) letter of interest and copy of their CV to
