Contributing Editors support TIA by regularly contributing to the blind peer-review process for submitted manuscripts. Like general reviewers, contributing editors provide authors and the core editorial team thoughtful, unbiased feedback on the quality and suitability of submissions. Contributing Editors may review manuscripts as part of the normal submission process or in response to special calls. Contributing editors also provide feedback to the Editorial Board, when requested, on short- and long-range planning for the content and dissemination of TIA as well as the quality and quantity of work published in TIA.
As needed, the editorial team solicits self-nominations from the full POD membership and selects Contributing Editors from the pool of self-nominations based on their familiarity with educational development literature, experience with the peer-review process, and commitment to a developmental approach to reviewing. Contributing Editors serve 3-year terms, renewable for one additional term, and commit to reviewing 3-6 manuscripts each year. There are no more than 20 Contributing Editors at any given time. If you are interested in becoming a contributing editor but have limited experience reviewing manuscripts, we encourage you to start by first signing up to be a reviewer for TIA.
TIA is not currently soliciting self-nominations for Contributing Editors.
