The International Communication Association Publications Committee is soliciting nominations for the editor of the Communication Yearbook (CY). Self-nominations are welcome. The appointment is for four years and begins in August/September, 2015.
Communication Yearbook will be published in four issues per year, with a rapid online publication model, and bound together as a final volume at the end of the year. Each volume will publish state-of-the-art essays and synthesis of scholarship. A new section to be developed by the future editor with the support of the ICA Board of Directors will include topical review essays of significant publications in the field.
It is both highly international and interdisciplinary in scope, with authors and chapters representing the broad global interests of the International Communication Association. The new editor of Communication Yearbook enjoys the opportunity to help shape the future of this important publication outlet, which will transition more formally into a journal format for Communication Yearbook 41-44 (2016-2019) enjoying the full electronic editorial support of a publisher.
A complete nomination package includes a letter of application from the candidate which should include a mission statement for the editorship; the candidate’s vitae; 2-3 letters of support from published scholars familiar with the candidate’s work, experience and suitability for the task of journal editing; and a letter of institutional support from the candidate’s home institution. Responsibilities are detailed in the ICA Publication Manual.
Editors of ICA publications should reflect and seek to enhance the diversity of the Association in terms of their interest areas, gender, ethnicity, and national origin.
Please send your nomination package at your earliest convenience to Michael Haley, ICA Executive Director. Review of packets will begin on 1 April 2015, and continue until the position is filled.
