CALL FOR EDITOR!

The Journal of Scholarly Publishing (JSP)
is currently seeking to fill the position of Editor.

The Journal of Scholarly Publishing (JSP) was launched in October 1969 by staff at University of Toronto Press to explore scholarly publishing in the world of the university press. In the inaugural editorial, Marsh Jeanneret, then Director of the Press, outlined the purpose of the journal, discussing the university press’s relationship to its parent institution, the business structure of academic publishing, the nature of copyright, and the rapidly evolving technology of communication – concerns still paramount for university presses today.

Forty-five years later, JSP continues to confront and document the challenges and achievements of academic publishers and serve the wide-ranging interests of the international academic publishing community. Articles examine the age-old problems in publishing as well as contemporary challenges resulting from changes in technology and funding through the exploration of topics such as editorial and publishing policy, computer applications, electronic publishing, effective marketing, and business management. Through balanced analysis of industry issues and concerns, JSP offers a unique blend of philosophical analysis and practical advice that has attracted readers around the world.

The Editor is responsible for determining editorial direction, developing an editorial board and editorial team, searching for authors, obtaining new submissions, and working directly with authors until pieces are ready for production. He or she must also edit the manuscripts, send the materials to the publisher for copyediting, and proofread each issue prior to publication.

The successful candidate must have a deep knowledge of the scholarly publishing field, a good eye for excellence in content and style, and communication and leadership skills, and must be able to manage time and scheduling effectively.

The new editor will be responsible for the publication of the first issue in 2016.
