Economic Inquiry Seeks Co-editors Looking for a Good Time

If you like piña coladas, and getting caught in the rain...


Economic Inquiry is seeking individuals who would be interested in serving as co-editors for the journal.

We are primarily looking for people who would be interested in handling papers in the fields of health, public, labor, education and/or urban. Candidates who could handle papers in multiple areas would be ideal. Current members of the editorial board and information about the journal can be found here.

We are looking for candidates who are leaders in their field and who would be interested in helping to grow the impact of the journal. Candidates should have a substantial publication record and ongoing research program. We expect to be adding 1-2 co-editors in these fields in the near future. Co-editors of the journal are expected to handle papers in their area which have been submitted to the journal including inviting referees, making decisions and sending decision letters to authors. Information on current journal policies can be found here and information about the editorial philosophy of the current Editor can be found here

The WEAI is committed to having an editorial board reflective of the diversity of the profession and so we want to encourage applications from strong scholars who are members of groups that might not be well represented on editorial boards. We are doing an open invitation for these positions hoping to reach individuals we might not normally know to invite on the board and so we also ask that if you know someone who would be interested, please forward this on to them.

If you are interested in one of these positions please send questions or a statement of interest to [email protected]. This statement should be no longer than one page and it should contain a description of the types of papers you would be interested in handling for the journal as well as an explanation of why you would like to be a journal editor. Please also include a CV or a link to a webpage where publications are listed. All inquiries will be evaluated for fit with the current needs of the journal and follow-up interviews will be requested with those candidates selected for further consideration to discuss details of the position.
