Call for Editor: Undergraduate Research (Due by Jan. 31, 2020)

Georgia College is excited to announce the launch of the new journal, Undergraduate Research, a journal of national scope, accepting submissions from undergraduate students from across the country.

We are seeking a faculty member who is passionate about undergraduate research, a strong communicator and ideally has prior experience editing, to serve as the first editor of our new journal, Undergraduate Research. This editor will work with MURACE, the Office of Transformative Learning Experiences, and a national editorial board to help shape and craft the direction of this new journal. Duties include:

Soliciting, receiving and processing new contributions to the journal through the peer review process.

Working with MURACE and the Editorial board to establish the journal’s publishing policies.

Working to establish all aspects of the journal (cover design, composition, etc)

Providing input on all aspects of submissions from initial vetting of manuscripts to article selections for each issue

Establish pool of reviewers as necessary, in terms of size, topic specialty

Acting as spokesperson for Undergraduate Research

Developing and maintaining beneficial links with other journals and associated organizations

The Editor will not be responsible for layout of the journal nor will this person be expected to host events during the academic year (other than potentially a launch party). The Editor will either receive one-course release per academic year, or a stipend [depending on personal preference].

The editorial board includes Dr. Eddie Watson (AAC&U), Dr. Jill Kinzie (co-author of Student Success in College, Indiana University), Dr. Amy Buddie (Director of 2019 NCUR), and many other experts in the field of Undergraduate Research.
