The new editor would serve from October 2013 to October 2014, and, assuming satisfactory performance, would be eligible for a full 3-year term beginning in October 2014. The postition pays a stipend of $6000 a year and involves reviewing and obtaining social-science manuscripts for publication. Electronic skills are important as the International Social Science Review is about to become an electronic, open-acess publication. The candidate must work closely with the book-review editor, chair of the Communications Committee, and executive director. This position requires solicitation of articles through Pi Gamma Mu-approved avenues; receipt of submitted articles; assurance that all articles, prior to publishing, have been reviewed by at least two approved referees; determination of order of said articles; and maintenance of records of all submissions, their current status, and the final determination. The candidate must be willing to attend the annual Board of Trustees meeting, for which Pi Gamma Mu will reimburse travel expenses, and to complete and present an annual report at the meeting.
