The ICA Publications Committee is soliciting nominations for the editor of the Journal of Communication (JoC). Self-nominations are welcome. The appointment is for 4 years and begins in Summer 2014.
JoC is a general forum for communication scholarship and publishes articles and book reviews examining a broad range of issues in communication theory and research. It publishes the best available scholarship on all aspects of communication, and all methods of scholarly inquiry into communication are welcome.
A completed nomination package includes a letter of application from the candidate which should include a mission statement for the editorship; the candidate's vitae; 2-3 letters of support from published scholars familiar with the candidate's work, experience and suitability for the task of journal editing; and a letter of institutional support from the candidate's home institution. Responsibilities are detailed in the ICA Publication Manual: www.icahdq.org/pubs/Publication_Manual.pdf.
Editors of ICA publications should reflect and seek to enhance the diversity of the Association in terms of their interest areas, gender, ethnicity, and national origin.
Please send your nomination package at your earliest convenience to Jake Harwood, Chair, Publications Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org). Review of packets will begin on 15 October 2013, and continue until the positions are filled.
