Become an Editor

Editors and Associate Editors are responsible for soliciting manuscripts; managing all aspects of the manuscript review process; making final editorial decisions; working with the publisher throughout the production and dissemination process; ensuring clear communication to authors and POD membership. With rolling online submissions to the journal, the work is consistent throughout the year with spikes based on the semi-annual production cycle in October and March. At minimum, Associate Editors should expect to spend 2-4 hours per week on journal work.

Editorial positions are multi-year commitments of two terms. During the first two-year term; Associate Editors receive active, collaborative mentoring from the Editors; during the second two-year term, Associate Editors ascend to the Editor position and mentor the next Associate Editors. 

For our Associate Editors, we seek collaborative colleagues from diverse backgrounds who join vision with attention to detail. We seek scholars who can cultivate and curate excellence in scholarship across the spectrum of educational development. We seek editors who are at once coach and critic, negotiating peer reviewers’ feedback to improve our authors’ ideas. Successful Associate Editors exhibit a global view of educational development and a commitment to advance diverse perspectives and modes of inquiry in a manner that enriches and promotes the scope, methods, and practice of the field.

Applications are solicited every odd year in the spring.
