Subject: Editor Positions

 



 

The Partnership Journal is seeking 3 new editors. Partnership is
published twice yearly in Spring and Fall.

 

Conference Spotlight Editor

 

This section features submissions based on excellent conference
presentations from Canadian library or library-related conferences and
may take the form of either a traditional article, an online poster, or
multimedia presentation.

 

The editor is responsible for seeking out nominations and submissions of
excellent conference presentations for the journal.  She or he is also
responsible for managing submissions in this section from the submission
stage through peer-review, copyediting, layout and publishing using a
web-based submission management system.  The position requires a time
commitment, on average, of approximately five hours per month, with peak
times occurring when the submission deadlines approach and again closer
to the publication time.

 

Profiles Editor

 

The Profiles section consists of a series of questions and answers
designed to allow members of the library community to get to know one
another.

Please see the current copy of the journal for examples of the Profiles
section:

questionnaires for publication, uploading the profiles to the journal
system and managing the submissions through the various stages of the
publishing process: copyediting, layout, and publishing using a
web-based submission management system. The time requirement for this
position will vary, with the peak times occurring closer to publication
dates. On average, the time commitment is approximately 3 hours per
