The ICA Publications Committee is soliciting nominations for the editor of the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication (JCMC). Self-nominations are welcome. The appointment is for 4 years, begins in August/September 2017, and will work through ICA's transition to Oxford University Press.
The Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication is a web-based, peer-reviewed scholarly journal. It publishes social science research on communicating with computer-based media technologies. Within that general purview, the journal is methodologically diverse and broadly interdisciplinary, publishing work by scholars in communication, business, education, political science, sociology, psychology, media studies, information science, and other disciplines.
JCMC publishes original research articles and meta-analyses of prior research. It is highly international in scope, with authors and articles representing the broad global interests of the International Communication Association. According to ISI Journal Citation Reports for 2015, JCMCis ranked No. 1 out of 79 journals in the field of Communication and No. 3 out of 86 journals in the field of Information Science & Library Science. More details about the journal can be obtained at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1111/(ISSN)1083-6101
A complete 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.
