So you want to be a journal editor?

So you want to be a journal editor?

A talk by A/Prof. David Hundt on how to apply for, and become a successful journal editor in your field, a notable research leadership role in being able to contribute to, and shape the discipline.

What’s involved in editing a scholarly journal, and how and why do people become editors? In this talk I will reflect on some of my experiences in editing the Australian Journal of Political Science and Asian Studies Review, and offer some suggestions for anyone who is interested in taking on an editorial role. Being an editor is an opportunity to make a unique contribution to your field, and this seminar is intended to be an open-ended discussion about what it entails.

Zoom details will be emailed to registered attendees the day before the event.

David Hundt is an Associate Professor of International Relations at Deakin University. He has published widely in international relations and Asian studies, with a special focus on Korea. His most recent monograph, entitled Varieties of Capitalism in Asia: Beyond the Developmental State, was published with Palgrave in 2017. Since 2018 he has been Editor-in-Chief of Asian Studies Review, after previously being an Associate Editor of the Australian Journal of Political Science (2011–2016).
