Open Call for Application for Editorial Staff for Genocide Studies and Prevention

The International Association of Genocide Studies (IAGS) is issuing an open call for senior and assistant editors for its open-access, on-line journal, Genocide Studies and Prevention: An International Journal.

The editor(s) will be a dynamic and recognized researcher with a doctorate degree, or equivalent, and possess a strong publication record along with a wide-ranging background in the fields that comprise genocide studies, broadly conceived. The candidate will also have a strong commitment to keeping the journal the premier publication in the field and the ability to commit time to the role. All applications will be decided upon within two months time. Editors are appointed by the IAGS executive board, and serve for a term of 36 months.

GSP is the official journal of the IAGS and publishes peer-reviewed scholarly research of the highest merit which advances our understanding of genocide and related forms of mass violence through conceptual development, high-level analysis, and sophisticated methodology aimed at answering important questions. Through its excellence, the journal promotes deeper understandings of the phenomenon of genocide, raises awareness of genocide as an ongoing scourge, and investigates the means of preventing it and mitigating its consequences.

To fully serve the field of genocide studies, broadly envisioned to encompass related forms of mass violence, the journal will continue to develop its importance as a forum for the exploration of ideas and the publication of debates that promote serious conversations among academic scholars, policy makers, and field workers based in the many disciplines engaging genocide scholarship. These include anthropology, art, communications, criminology, economics, forensics, geography, history, international relations, journalism, law, literature, military science, philosophy, political science, psychology, public health, religion and sociology. The IAGS and its journal are beholden only to the highest standards of scholarly research and publication, eschewing conflicts of interest and the appearance of conflicts of interest in their structures, their funders and their professional work.

Applicants for the position of editor should submit the following materials:

  • Description of qualifications
