ASIANetwork seeks Editor(s) from ASIANetwork member institutions to direct publication of ASIANetwork Exchange: A Journal for Asian Studies in the Liberal Arts, the official scholarly journal of ASIANetwork. AN Exchange, a leading journal in Asian Studies, uses a double-blind peer review process resulting in a competitive acceptance rate. Applicants for the editorship position may apply individually or as a team of two with different disciplinary and regional specialties.
AN Exchange serves the unique needs of liberal arts education, with articles designed for both specialists and non-specialists. The journal publishes original research and reviews in order to assist teachers in their own professional development, and it strives to make research and pedagogy about Asia accessible to a broader audience of faculty and students.
As a peer-reviewed scholarly journal, AN Exchange provides a forum for the publication of current research that falls into the following four categories: discovery (disciplinary research), application (applying scholarship to address societal issues of concern), integration (interdisciplinary collaboration), and teaching (pedagogical innovation).
The editors will oversee and produce two issues of the journal each year through its online management and production system. The term of the editors is three years with the possibility to be extended up to two additional years. Duties include soliciting individual articles and guest edited sections; engaging the services of support staff, including our contract with the Open Library of the Humanities (OLH) for our publication platform; maintaining an Advisory Board and Editorial Board; and preparing and maintaining a journal budget and production calendar, the online submission system, and print and online publication options for members.
Applications are due by February 1, 2020, but submissions will be accepted until the position(s) is filled. Applicants must be from ASIANetwork member schools. Please submit name(s), cover letter (including interest and relevant experience), and CV to Siti Kusujiarti, Search Committee Chair, with the subject heading “AN Exchange Editor Application.” The search committee will make selection and conduct interviews at the ASIANetwork annual conference in April 2020. New editor(s) will officially begin as early as Fall 2020 or as late as Fall 2021.
