The International Society for Education Through Art is seeking a Principal Editor for the International Journal of Education Through Art
InSEA is seeking an energetic and committed Principal Editor to lead the Editorial Team for its highly regarded peer reviewed journal, the International Journal of Education Through Art (IJETA). Successful candidates will be responsible for the journal for a period of three years (2020– 2022) with an additional year (2019) as Principal Editor-elect, during which time the successful applicant will work with the current Principal Editor in preparation for the position.
IJETA has established itself as a highly respected and important source for research dissemination in the field. IJETA promotes original ways of re-thinking the status of education through art and art education, while addressing the role of teaching and learning in either formal or informal educational contexts. The journal provides a platform to question and evaluate ways art is produced, disseminated and interpreted across a diverse range of educational contexts.
Applicants for the position of Principal Editor should be experienced art educators with an interest in a broad range of developments in the field of visual arts education. They must be current members of InSEA, hold an advanced academic degree, have a strong record of academic publishing with experience serving on editorial boards and/ or reviewing work for publication. Ideally, they will have published research at national and international levels.
Applicants must be familiar with working electronically, be prepared to work flexibly depending on the workload required across a publication cycle and hold a vision for the future of the journal that takes into account the changing landscape of academic research and publishing.
Although we are seeking a Principal Editor, we ideally seek an editorial team (Principal Editor, two Editors, a Reviews Editor and an Editorial Assistant).
The position is unpaid.
