New Editor Sought for Criminology
The American Society of Criminology (ASC) invites applications for the position of Editor of Criminology, one of its official journals. The new Editor will be responsible for three volumes beginning with the February 2012 issue. It is anticipated that new manuscript submissions will transfer to the new Editor around November 2010. ASC is considering an integrated system of electronic manuscript submission and review for its journals and the new Editor is expected to benefit from this process.
The Editor is responsible for the timely and substantive output of the journal, including the solicitation of manuscripts, supervision of the peer review process and the final selection of articles for publication.
The American Society of Criminology pays for copy-editing and final proof-reading, typesetting, providing PDF files, and up to $35,000 per year toward full-time equivalent Managing Editor/graduate student assistance. The Editor’s supporting institution might propose to provide office space, file storage, equipment, and funds to cover office expenses such as postage, phone, copying, additional graduate student assistance, and release time for the Editor. ASC will provide a $5,000 honorarium to the Editor each year. Supporting institutions may propose to assume some of the expenses now provided by the ASC.

Interested applicants may contact the current Editor, Denise Gottfredson (dgottfredson@crim.umd.edu; 301-405-4717) for additional information regarding the logistics or operational details of editing and producing the journal. Applicants are welcome to contact Cheryl Maxson, Chair, ASC Publications Committee (cmaxson@uci.edu; 949/824-5150), to discuss their applications before submission.

Application materials should include (1) a statement of editorial philosophy, (2) resumes of all proposed personnel, including the Editor and Associate Editors, and (3) assurances and details of institutional support. Eight CD’s containing application materials should be sent to:

Cheryl Maxson
Chair, ASC Publications Committee
Dept. of Criminology, Law and Society
University of California, Irvine

Irvine, CA 92697-7080

Applications must be received by March 1, 2010.
