[ecrea] Editor of Journal of Media Practice - Expressions of Interest welcome

Fri Apr 23 12:33:52 GMT 2010

Editor, Journal of Media Practice
Expressions of interest
are sought for this unpaid but highly responsible post, held since 2006 by Lina Khatib (Royal Holloway University of London).  Lina, assisted by a supportive Editorial Board, has been a very successful editor, who has relocated to Stanford, California, and has left the JMP in a strong position.
The JMP has achieved a well deserved international reputation as the peer-reviewed source of research and teaching reflection about media practice.   Published three times per year by Intellect (further details available from, this is the only print-based peer-reviewed journal to focus on practical media teaching and research. The JMP also supports a very successful annual symposium on research through media practice.
The Editorial Board is seeking interest from individuals/teams who will be supported by their institution, i.e. from those who are not only able to bring appropriate personal skills to the post, but who can also provide a home for the editorial operation.  Currently, Royal Holloway provides administration, office and contact support.  It is hoped that at least this level of support can be made available by applicants. The journal currently has a Books/Film Editor, Zahera Harb, and a Web Editor, Gail Pearce.
The Editorial Board would first like to receive Expressions of Interest from suitably experienced and interested applicants, accompanied by a Statement of Intent and a short CV. The Statement of Intent should outline firstly (and briefly) a vision for the future development of JMP, and secondly a realistic, and brief, assessment of how the JMP might be supported by both the applicant and the host institution.
Please send expressions of interest and a CV by June 1st 2010 to the Chair of the Editorial Board, Cahal McLaughlin ((c.mclaughlin2 /at/ to whom specific questions may also be addressed. We hope to interview in early July.
Thank you for considering this.
