Type of opportunity:
Yellowback is seeking a new, part-time journal editorial assistant to join our team on a 12-month fixed-term and home-working contract. The role is expected to be focused on supporting journals in the fields of regional studies and spatial economics although the successful candidate may also be asked to assist on other journals.
The work involves using web-based peer review management software (e.g. ScholarOne Manuscripts, Editorial Manager); performing administrative and production checks on submitted and accepted manuscripts; liaising with authors, referees, editors and publishers, usually by email; identifying out of scope or poor quality submissions; checking proofs; scheduling issues and other tasks as needed. The hours are flexible although there may be some restrictions to meet client needs. The work is home based with occasional meetings virtually or in person.
Interested candidates are invited to provide a CV and covering letter outlining their previous experience and qualifications, suitability for the role and why they would like to do this work.
Applications and questions should be directed to Dr Madeleine Hatfield (via firstname.lastname@example.org).
