Call for Editors: Acta Musicologica

Tuesday, 15 September 2020, 5.00pm

The International Musicological Society (IMS) seeks applications for a new editorial team for a five-year term, with a possible extension of a further five years.

The editors will be responsible for the structure, content, and quality of the journal. Together with the IMS Bureau they will also be in charge of selecting an editorial board. Proposals by individuals or by teams of two or three editors are accepted. In the case of team proposals, each person should also indicate if they wish to be considered on an individual basis as well.

The editorial team should mirror the international breadth and methodological diversity supported by the IMS. The positions are honorary; however, the editorial team will receive a lump sum of CHF 3,000.00 per year, which is to be divided equally among the editors.

Eligibility Criteria:
1. Comprehensive vision for the journal. Proposals should spell out a clear and compelling vision for the journal, including a statement about how the editor(s) would develop the journal’s digital version and future online presence.
2. Demonstrated breadth and balance across the subfields of musicology. It is essential that the journal represent breadth and balance in the broad field of musicological research. The IMS also hopes to see evidence of methodological pluralism and interdisciplinary work, sustained intellectual balance and judiciousness, and an active interest in tolerating and learning from approaches different
from their own.
3. Editorial and administrative experience. The editorial team should be familiar with the highest standards of scholarly assessment and publication, whether as authors/editors of refereed journals and books, and/or as members of editorial boards. Editors should have administrative experience that demonstrates appropriate levels of management, organizational, and communication skills.
