Call for a Column Co-Editor - Serials Review

Call for a Column Co-Editor - Serials Review

Serials Review is looking for a co-editor of the "Balance Point" column. The "Balance Point" has traditionally served as a forum for multiple authors who work in areas related to serials and who present different viewpoints about current issues and controversial topics related to serials.

The Balance Point co-editor is charged with editing the column for two issues of Serials Review per year. Responsibilities include determining column topics, recruiting contributors, communicating with the journal and columns editors, editing and incorporating the writing of
contributors to the issue, preparing introductions, and seeing that publication deadlines are met.

The person should be linked to the serials profession, either in librarianship, publishing or some area of serials content provision. This person should be curious about exploring issues related to serials and want to make a contribution to the literature of serials. Though this is an unpaid, voluntary position, the rewards include publication, involvement in a major scholarly/professional journal publication, and the intellectual satisfaction of contributing to the professional and scholarly discussion of serials.

Interested parties should send a description of their interests and qualifications by November 15, 2008 to:

Beverley Geer, or Connie Foster,
