Sun Mar 17 16:49:28 GMT 2024

We are lookin for a mobile communication scholar to join me as co-Editor in Sage’s journal Mobile Media and Communication <>. The full call can be found here <chrome-extension://efaidnbmnnnibpcajpcglclefindmkaj/>.

Mobile Media & Communication is a peer-reviewed forum for international, interdisciplinary academic research on the dynamic field of mobile media and communication. The journal draws on a wide and continually renewed range of disciplines, engaging broadly in the concept of mobile communication. It embraces both quantitative and qualitative approaches to the study of mobile communication while applying state-of-the-art methods and theory. The center of gravity for the journal is in social sciences and humanities. The journal publishes three times a year in print and online.
*The engagement will be a total of four years. The editorial team of Veronika Karnowski, Rich Ling and Adriana de Souza e Silva are looking for applicants to join Adriana de Souza e Silva when Veronika Karnowski and Rich Ling step down in February 2025. Adriana will serve as Senior Editor while one new applicant will work as Editor, eventually transitioning to Senior Editor when Adriana steps down in February 2027, at which point there will be a call for another Editor. We envision the journal having one Senior Editor and one Editor who will rotate on a two-year basis.*

    particular focus on maintaining and improving quality and impact;

    submission system), liaising with authors, and responsibility for
    the selection and revision of articles;
  * Communicating with authors, reviewers, and guest editors
  * Making the final decisions regarding the publishability of manuscripts;
  * Managing and developing the editorial board;
  * Taking an active role in soliciting submissions and encouraging
    articles of compelling academic research.

General responsibilities of the Senior Editor include:

  * Maintaining regular contact with Sage and ensuring the delivery of
    copy according to agreed production schedules;

  * Hand-over and logistical management of the final manuscripts
    vis-a-vis the SAGE production team;
  * Help in preparing and conducting annual editorial board meetings;
  * Scheduling and leading bi-monthly editorial team meetings.

The journal receives approximately 15-20 manuscripts per month.
