---- Call for Applications: ARSC Journal Editor ----

The Association for Recorded Sound Collections invites applications from
individuals with editorial and/or publishing experience, for the position of
Editor of the ARSC Journal.

The Journal's primary goal is to publish original research, to advance the
study and documentation of the history of recorded sound.  We anticipate
that the successful candidate will work together with current editor Barry
Ashpole on the Spring 2015 and Fall 2015 issues of the Journal, and will
assume full editorial responsibilities by the late summer or early fall of
2015.  This is a five-year, renewable appointment.

The Editor of the ARSC Journal is responsible for overseeing the editorial
process and pre-production.  This work includes initiating and screening
submissions, facilitating blind peer review, ensuring that necessary
permissions are in place, consulting with the contributing editors and the
art director, and checking page proofs.  The Editor also chairs the
Editorial Advisory Board, which provides advice and guidance on editorial
policy, and has the option of appointing an Assistant Editor.  Copies of the
full job description and the Editorial Board's Terms of Reference are
available upon request.

Interested persons should submit a letter of interest, a current CV
including a list of references, and a sample of published work as editor
and/or publisher to:
