The Royal Archaeological Institute is seeking an editor for the multi-period, peer-reviewed Archaeological Journal to succeed Dr Lisa-Marie Shillito, who, during her five-year tenure, has introduced many modern features to the Journal with our publishing partner, Routledge. Her last volume will be Volume 179 for 2022. We hope that the newly-appointed editor will shadow Dr Shillito during 2021, and will then edit Volume 180, to be published online in January and June 2023, and in print in July that year.
We anticipate that the person appointed will commit to the publication of five volumes, to Volume 184. The position attracts an annual emolument of £4,500. The Editor is an ex officio member of Council which meets up to four times a year. In addition, the RAI Editorial Committee meets once or twice a year.
Membership of the Institute will be expected.
Current members, or those at subscribing institutions, may review the back stock of publications online on Taylor and Francis’ website. (Those unable to familiarise themselves with the Institute’s published work may contact the Administrator on firstname.lastname@example.org for login help.)
The editorial team also includes a Reviews Editor, and an Editorial Committee which will consider
expressions of interest at its meeting on 9th December. The person appointed will be expected to attend the next Editorial meeting on 14th April 2021.
