The editors of Contemporary European History are looking for a freelance managing editor to provide assistance to support the editorial process. This individual will work with a dynamic editorial team, playing a central role in the publication of one of the world’s leading history journals.
The key duties of the managing editor will be:
- Administrative processing of articles and reviews; distributing new submissions to the editors; managing ongoing correspondence between the editors, special issue editors, authors and reviewers; and tracking submissions, resubmissions, proofs and corrections.
- Representing the first point of contact at the CEH office; responding to enquiries; logging submissions and maintaining the accuracy of database information.
- Liaising with Cambridge University Press concerning all production matters.
- Carrying out linguistic editing, copy-editing and proof collation/checking of all articles for publication.

Payment will be made at an hourly rate up to a maximum number of hours per issue. Over 12 months, four issues will be published and payment is expected to be c.£8,500.
