DEBATTE – NEW EDITORS

Debatte: Journal of Contemporary Central and Eastern Europe is looking for new members to join its core editorial team. We would like people to fill the following roles
 
Articles Editor – This would involve organising peer review of submitted articles and preparing issues of the journal for submission to the publishers. It could also involve other intiatives such as planning special issues or symposia.

Commissioning Editor – This would involve commissioning topical articles and collecting documents for publication from the countries covered by the journal for our `Forum’ section. It would be based on liaising with the various editorial board members who have contacts and interests in those countries.

Managing Editor – This would involve organising editorial board and editorial working group meetings, circulating minutes and liasing with the publishers Taylor and Francis with regard to promoting the journal. This role might suit a graduate student wishing to gain experience in academic journal production.
 
The editorial board meets three times a year inLondon with three further editorial working group meetings scheduled in the intervening months.

Debatte seeks to provide a radical critical analysis that is sympathetic to democratic, labour, feminist and ecologist movements of contemporary economic, social, cultural and political developments in the region bounded by Germany in the west and Russia in the east. For further details about the journal see http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/cdeb

If you are interested in any of these roles (the exact distribution of responsibilities can be adjusted if necessary) then please contact the current editor Andy Kilmister at  ackilmister@brookes.ac.uk
